[SOLVED] No document preview working

I am running Labs 3.1 stable on ubuntu 8.04. After searching these forums for possible solutions to my problem I have installed openoffice.org-headless-3 and swftools-0.9.0.
Openoffice is starting and listening on port 8100
When i upload .odt or .doc files they are being indexed correctly - searching brings up documents with the searched word located within.
When I go into the details of any document, the preview does not work.
When bringing up a .doc or .odt, I get the error 'The preview could not be loaded form server'
When I bring up a pdf file, the little circle just keeps spinning its wheels for ages (I left it while I went to get lunch, when I came back 30m later, it was still spinning)
I cannot find any errors in my log - I am looking in alfresco.log, is there another log I should be looking at?
Any pointers on what to investigate next?

EDIT

Okay, not sure if this is relevant or not, but I just rebooted and I noticed via repeated netstats that port 8080 starts listening almost a minute before openoffice on port 8100. I got the following warning in alfresco.log:
17:14:48,098 WARN  [org.alfresco.util.OpenOfficeConnectionTester] An initial OpenOffice connection could not be established.
But by the time its up an I log in OO is listening. Could this be a problem?
