Description Bernd Westermann 2004-07-07 14:21:00 UTC
No ldap and mozilla support in openoffice

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

Please add --enable-mozilla in openoffice-1.1.1-r1 (etc.) to the configure 
ex.: ./configure --enable-gcc3 <..many more..> --enable-mozilla || die
Comment 1 Wojciech Myrda 2004-07-10 01:19:35 UTC
yes that would be a nice extension to have ex.--enable-mozilla. Question is however, is really nessesery to have it? Does the ./configure script find it on its own? Have you tried checking it?
However implementing it would give more control over the building process... I am waiting to see it as well

P.S. Personally I never tried to compile OOo, because lack of space on my /var
Comment 2 Bernd Westermann 2004-07-12 00:45:37 UTC
Without --enable-mozilla OO will not use mozilla adds like LDAP etc. ./configure is not searching for mozilla libs, because OO has its own mozilla code build in.
Comment 3 Paul de Vrieze (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-08-03 02:05:25 UTC
Last time I checked it would just fail on missing mozilla libraries. If you tr(y/ied) enabling that option and it actually works (runs even) please report back.
Comment 4 Bernd Westermann 2004-08-03 03:14:52 UTC
Yes it works (for me). I think there are build in mozilla libs/source!?
Comment 5 Andreas Proschofsky (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-01-23 12:06:25 UTC
There is a good reason this is not enabled, it breaks a lot, so until the code regarding to this gets sane, won't do this
