Wondering if anyone else has had problems emerging OpenOffice. Here is my output:

Code:

~: emerge openoffice
Calculating dependencies ...done!
>>> emerge (1 of 1) app-office/openoffice-1.0.3-r2 to /
>>> md5 src_uri ;-) OOo_1.0.3_source.tar.bz2
>>> md5 src_uri ;-) STLport-4.5.3.tar.gz
>>> md5 src_uri ;-) gpc231.tar.Z
>>> md5 src_uri ;-) freetype-2.1.3.tar.bz2
>>> md5 src_uri ;-) helpcontent_01_unix.tgz
 *
 * This build needs gcc-3.{2,3}.x, but due to profile
 * settings, it cannot DEPEND on it, so please merge it
 * manually:
 *
 *  #  ebuild /usr/portage/sys-devel/gcc/gcc-3.2.1.ebuild merge
 *
 * Please make sure that you use the latest availible revision of
 * gcc.
 *


Anyone have any ideas what might be wrong? I have GCC 3.4.1-r3.

From the error output, it looks as if it needs either gcc-3.2 or gcc-3.3 to compile OO. You have gcc-3.4.

Maybe you should just try installing gcc-3.3:

emerge -p \<=gcc-3.3

Is gcc-3.4 considered stable?

GCC 3.4 has been stable for a long time on PPC (even if it is not so on x86), and in my experience it is much better than the 3.3 series. You could install 3.3 in parallel (or 3.2, whatever is needed for OpenOffice, they are in a different slot than 3.4 so you won't loose the good compiler) as instructed in the previous post and use gcc-config to swicth back and forth. Myself, I would just install the OO binary...

Amen to that, brother. OO needs ridiculous amounts of space for compilation and takes ages compile. I didn't notice any speedup versus the binary.

well... for me there is one benefit - localisation of OOo with manual compilation...

echo "app-office/openoffice ~ppc" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
echo "app-office/openoffice-ximian ~ppc" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
emerge -pv openoffice-ximian

You can set KDE or GNOME in your USE-FLAGS. It will integrate Openoffice very nice to favorite window-manager.

Build 1.3.6 compiles without problems with gcc3.4.1 on PPC. You can work without problems. Only crashes at closing, so do not forget to save your documents. No problems on working, all my textwork or presentations never f***ed up. This is only if you close the document without saving and seems to be an KDE-Build error :(

So you can get your localized OpenOffice :)

Regards - Pozdrowienia,

FYI, it compiled OK and have KDE integration. It seems a little faster opening documents also. However, it took a long time to compile on my dual 1.8 G5 with 512 MB ~ 10 hrs. So perhaps wait for the binary version.

hmmm... I cannot compile openoffice nor openoffice-ximian on gcc 3.4.3 (powerbook G4).

my CFLAGS="-O2 -mcpu=7400 -maltivec -mabi=altivec -pipe -mpowerpc-gfxopt -fomit-frame-pointer"

CXXFLAGS are the same.

i cannot post error message now, but it keeps crashing at the same moment (after aout 15minutes of compilation).

It's known not to compile with 3.4.3 due to a compiler issue. Please use the stable compiler (3.4.1) instead.
