I have tried several times but it keeps failing. Has anyone else got it to work? I also tried the openoffice-ximian-bin but that doesn't run either (compiled for x86?).

Does anyone have any suggestions?

for me openoffice 1.1.3 compiled fine with gcc 3.4.3. It took me 8h15min to compile it on an 1.5Ghz Pb.

But I see that 1.1.4 is out. So I'll give it a try.

I successfully compiled 1.1.4. It only took me 2 days with my 500Mhz iMac :wink:.
The compile did crash once in the middle, but I was using the ebuild command to create a binary package, so I was able to restart it.

I highly recommend using
Code:
ebuild `equery which openoffice` package

and then
Code:
emerge -K openoffice

for large packages.

Good luck,
Erik

Thanks guys, I'll try the normal openoffice and use the suggestions you provided.

I don't understand why it would bomb out like this. Sometimes when it would crash there would be a message that said something to the effect that this error was not reproducable so it is a problem with the compiler or hardware. Gcc segfaults sometimes. Does that mean there really is something wrong with the hardware? Like bad ram or something?

You don't happen to have enabled preemtion in your kernel. I used to have problems until I disabled it.

Erik

P.S. That's also why I build packages for large ebuilds first. They can be restarted from where you left off.

On my pb openoffice 1.1.4 compiled fine with gcc 3.4.3

It took me 10h20min. :-D

I did it the normal way with
Code:

emerge openoffice

Aww crap. You can't be serious. Yeah I do have it enabled. :? I guess I'll try disabling it. Thanks for the tip.

heh, it must have been the preemptive kernel that messed things up. This time it compiled up until the hard drive got filled up. :evil:

I had 2 gigs free when it started, how much does this require? Do I need to unmerge everything to make room for openoffice? :cry:

Oh, and how can i clean out all the downloaded source code in portage?

Under a standard set of portage directories:
Code:
rm /usr/portage/distfiles/*

Of course I have preemptible kernel too and I'm having problems with openoffice too.
I want preemptible kernel for my desktop iBook, do I have to switch it for every emerge?
Does the way with emerge -B and after that emerge -K help out? And why should building the binary only get to another result?

Preempt is broken on PPC. Unless you're okay with things randomly segfaulting, there is no workaround. Just don't use it.

Thank you. A lot of bothersome problems are solved now.
I failed to read the faq thoroughly.
