Description steven 2003-05-26 12:26:54 UTC
The problem:
After trying to emerge openoffice in a different language, you notice that the 
"program" directory hasn't been generated in "/opt/OpenOffice-1.0.3/".
I didn't notice anything strange while he was emergeing.

The problem is floating around a while on the forums but I couldn't find any 
matching bug. (if there is one excuse me for the dupe)  The only solution I 
could find on the forums was: "don't compile with the LANGUAGE parameter".  More 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.LANGUAGE=31 && emerge openoffice

Actual Results:  
/usr/bin/ooffice: line 209: /home/steven/.openoffice/1.0.3/soffice: unknown file 
or directory
/usr/bin/ooffice: line 209: exec: /home/steven/.openoffice/1.0.3/soffice: cannot 
execute: unknown file or directory

Expected Results:  
Start open office

Do you for any chance use a binary openoffice? In that case there is a problem that the files have the same modification date, and as such are removed by portage. If you unmerge first, and then only merge it should be solved. I will backport the fix from the beta2 ebuild to 1.0.3
Comment 2 steven 2003-06-27 01:57:02 UTC
No, I don't use the binary version.  I am now using the english version (merged perfectly).
I will try to unmerge OO and reemerge it with the language parameter after syncing the tree.  I 'll let you know how it works out.
Comment 3 steven 2003-06-27 05:22:54 UTC
It didn't do the job.  Nothing has changed. After unmerging openoffice en reemergin it with the LANGUAGE flag.  
I have the fealing that everything is compiled fine but some files weren't copied.  The ebuild didn't give any warning.

Hope I did the right things.  (Or do I have to try the beta ebuild?)
Comment 4 Ralph Slooten 2003-07-23 09:10:00 UTC
I'm getting this same problem with the latest build (1.1_rc), and despite the fact that I didn't set a language, or have the openoffice-bin installed, I get exactly the same problem
Comment 5 Paul de Vrieze (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-10-23 06:04:49 UTC
Is this still a problem with 1.1.0?
Comment 6 steven 2003-10-23 06:09:33 UTC
No everything is now ok
Comment 7 Paul de Vrieze (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-10-23 06:34:55 UTC
Ok, I'll close it then
