Description Steve 2004-04-23 03:54:43 UTC
When One attempts to open a Microsoft Word Format File in Kword, there is a segmentation violation. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Build Koffice from the ebuild	
2.Open a word Document
3.Go look at the error output

Actual Results:  
the following error was produced: 
steve@SuperLaptop steve $ kword 
Word 8 (aka Word 97) document found 
Information: Couldn't open the Data stream, no big deal 
Detected a different STSHI, check this (trying to read Word97 one) 
Warning: STSHI too big? New version? Expected: 22 Read: 20 
Warning: sprmCLidBi not implemented (no documentation available) 
Warning: sprmCHpsBi not implemented (no documentation available) 
Warning: DOP has a different size than expected. 
KCrash: Application 'kword' crashing... 

Expected Results:  
Opened the file, or declined to be able to open it 

Maybe this is a KDE project bug and not gentoo? I've rebuilt Koffice several 
times with different Make options. As far as i can see my CFlags dont do it, 
can anyone confirm this? or give settings with which it worked?

Comment 1 Steve 2004-04-23 04:17:23 UTC
Additional Wonkey Behavior, when opening a OpenOffice file format, KWord appears to get stuck in a loop, the following message

ASSERT: "frm" in (632) 

over and over agian in console. And KWord itself is locked.

try the koffice mailing list, I bet they can help you out with it.
Comment 3 Carsten Lohrke (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-08-10 14:51:47 UTC
Caleb marked KOffice 1.3.2 stable today. Emerging a recent wv2 version (before upgrading koffice) is helpful, too. This is nothing we can do about. If you still have problems, try either the koffice mailinglist or
