This openoffice is keyword-masked stable on sparc
Emerge success, after emerge, run any of openoffice application (like xoofice) will get segment fault.
Not sure if it is openoffice bug or gentoo bug.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge openoffice-ximian (successful on my UltraSparc2)
3. you see the error message
Gnome session manager detected - session management disabled
running openoffice.org setup...
/usr/bin/xooffice: line 172: 2566 Segment Fault
setup failed.. abort
Could you please check if this could be your problem:
Andreas, I think, perhaps not.
I am using dev-java/blackdown-jdk-1.4.1-r1 which is an earlier version than the one mensioned "working correctly" in #73083
The bug could be because of JDK, only I don't know how to make sure of it. I can hardly replace it with another JDK, I am on sparc, AFAIK blackdown-jdk is the only one.
Do you suggest me emerge an older version and try again?
No, blackdown should be fine. Could you try the advice in the bug I mentioned and see if the java path in
is the correct one for your system?
I recently committed regular openoffice-1.1.4 & openoffice-ximian-1.3.7 to ~sparc.
They built just fine for me with java enabled, can you give one of those a spin?
Also please post your emerge --info since, for example, ~sparc glibc is known to break blackdown-jdk.
Thank you for your suggestion Gustavo Zacarias. It will take me several days to emerge your version of openoffice, so I prefer first re-compile glibc (the same verison. I cannot recall if I compiled glibc-126.96.36.19940420-r2 with ~sparc, so I now re-emerge it without ~sparc), and try other people's suggestion, adjust jdk and so like. If all fails, I'll try your 1.3.7;)
Basically glibc-2.3.4* is broken for blackdown on sparc, if you have glibc-188.8.131.5240420-r2 you don't need to re-emerge it.
I have quickpkg'ed my openoffice builds if you wanna try those for a quick spin.
Cool, Gustavo. The question is how do I get the package? By p2p or can you give me / mail me a link?
Thank you. By the way, this morning I came back to the office and emerge glibc is finished, but bug is there still.
Download and place the one you want into /usr/portage/packages/All and use emerge -k.
I prefer to emerge openoffice-ximian from source. I started to do it now, the result will be out the day after tomorrow.
Because I am running gnome, emerge kde-env and kde-libs takes time too.
I emerged your ~sparc xoo but now it failed with exactly the same error message.
Andreas: I checked but this file on my box
Does not refer to anything like black-down, so I don't know how to follow your suggestion in 73083
Here is my javarc
Another possible reason for setup crashing is a problem with one your fonts
I think perhaps it's not a font problem. I only have one font that is not in Gentoo port tree (actually, I never emerged a font). And I removed that font and openoffice still crash.
All my fonts are very common.
Another idea: Do you have a mounted /proc filesystem?
Yes I have.
Currently I am adjusting CFLAGS and trying differen options (like -java and -O1). Each trial will take several days, and it's very close to Chinese new year, too many things to sort out, I would be very slow. However I will keep putting up my trial result in this bug tracker.
There is nothing we can do without more info, please reopen if you get it again.
I failed again. Error message attached. However, I am stupid enough to find that after compiled several days, that I am only compiling 1.3.5-r1 rather than expected 1.3.7 for wrong ACCEPT_KEYWORDS.
I don't have much faith in try it again. I think I should just close this bug and install the binary Gustavo Zacarias provided. In case I need to compile it again and have problem again, I will reopen this bug to report further information?
We are up to openoffice-ximian-1.3.8 in ~sparc starting yesterday night.
I just finished uploading the quickpkg.
Note that this one is built with mostly everything on, so it'll probably pull gnome & kde.
Today I installed the pkg 1.3.7 you provided with URI, and again, it crashed with segment fault.
I hope I am the only one who has this problem. Is it my system has some problem or triggered a hidden bug?
Are you using some locale/LINGUAS different than the default?
Just curious, i just use english and haven't had any problems.
You are right I guess! I login as root where root LOCAL is set to en_US, and openoffice launched successfully.
Currently I am using zh_CN.UTF-8
Any further suggestions? I must use zh_CN and I already have tone of file and documents in UTF-8, so I dislike to move to zh_CN.GB18030 or other locale.
And I heard some people are using zh_CN in UTF-8 under the zh_CN.EUC locale. Not sure if it's true.
Nope. I failed again. With segment falult
It seems only root can run xopenoffice. I currently run openoffice fine with a sudo to root. Run xopenoffice in any other users, even if locale is English, it fail with segment fault.
this doesn't work and still produce seg fault.
mv -r /root/.xopenoffice /root/.xversionrc /home/zhangweiwu
As openoffice-2.0.0 is now marked ~sparc could you please try with this and
report back if it works now, should generally go a lot better than older versions
Shouldn't be a problem anymore with 2.0.0, also would need some feedback,
otherwise there is nothing we can do
The bug should be closed because I only meet this bug on sparc with 1.x but now
my sparc is broken and I don't use 1.x anymore, thus not being able to reproduce
