Description Evan Teran 2003-05-30 00:51:39 UTC
i have installed the gcc-3.3 masked ebuild from portage (works like a charm :))

anyway, i wanted to install the latest openoffice from source and it said i
needed 3.2 or greater!

seems the ebiuld checks the version with a '!= "3.2"' this should probably be '<
"3.2"' and anything 3.2 or _greater_ should be sufficient.

I actually spend a lot of time on this allready. Just editing the ebuild doesn't do the trick ;-) I allready applied a lot of patches, which actually fixed the compile process but it still dies somewhere during install...

Hello , 

can you post the patches ? 
so that I can try to compile too ? 

bye bernd 
Comment 3 Mathy Vanvoorden 2003-06-10 10:20:00 UTC
You can find them in the Isuezilla of openoffice. Been a while since I last checked so maybe with the latest patches it'll actually work ;-)

The problems should be fixed in openoffice CVS, I think we would better wait until 1.1 beta3 as there are many patches, and it is easy to mis some. Of course if someone is willing to create a full, working patch-set that could be applied, but it is a lot of work as compiling OO takes too much time.

The release candidate should actually build with gcc-3.3, so closing this bug. Please reopen the bug if rc1 does not compile with gcc-3.3
