Starting dimdim displayed several errors when starting up. It would work just fine except for sharing documents. This always produced the error: 'The document conversion failed with error: document id generation failed.'. Looking closer to the start up errors and doing some google searching I finally figured out how to get documents to upload and display.

SystemError: dynamic module not initialized properly
Revert my openoffice 3.1 back to openoffice 3.0. Significant changes between the version of open office cause issues with calling required modules. You can use yum to remove the current openoffice rpm (will be several rpms).
You can find the rpm for open office 3.0 here.
You will need to gunzip and tar the file to unpack it. Once you have done that you can follow the directions here to install them.
