    Snow Leopard OS X Java 1.6 update problem

      Thursday, October 21, 2010

      With the latest Snow Leopard OS X Java 1.6 update 3, OOO 3.2.1 fails in starting saying it needs a Java runtime environment. Both the 64 and 32 bit installations start but are not recognized by OOo.

      To get around this I installed Java 1.5 using the 10.5 update 8 and following the instructions found here.


      Note that I used the latest update so I had the latest security fixes.

      I also had to manually add the 1.5 environment by pointing OOo to /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.5.0/Home/
