Doh! Beat me to it. Fine :)

I've had it installed for a few days, so I just did a quickpkg and there it was.

Put it in your /usr/portage/packages/All directory, then run
Code:
emerge -K openoffice
.
How was the download speed?

My speeds at the office are cap'd at 160k and I was pulling all of that. Very nice and very much appreciated!

Oh, and if I dont have a packages/All directory in /usr/portage I'm guessing I should make one?

Yes. Any time you make a quickpkg or emerge -b, the directory is created if it doesn't already exist. So it's standard.

I keep getting a lot of really very strange dependencies.

I have the openoffice-2.0.0.tbz2 file in /usr/portage/packages/All

however when I run emerge -K openoffice I keep getting things like this:

!!! There are no packages available to satisfy: ">-www-client/mozilla-1.7.10"

I also had a similar request for gnome-vfs (which I just capitualted on and emerged)

Ideas?

Code:
mkdir /usr/portage/packages/app-office
cd /usr/portage/packages/app-office
ln -s ../All/openoffice.tbz2

...might do it..?

The problem is that you don't have a mozilla package available and mozilla isn't installed. You should either emerge OO.o's deps manually or use the -k option instead of -K, this will allow portage to build the packages from source that you don't have binaries for.

So to sum it up:
-k - Use binary packages if available
-K - Use only binary packages

New G3 2.0.1 binaries, without Mozilla support. This just means you'lll have to download, say, a word file before opening it with ooo.

Here are the G3 binaries (compile time = ~24 hrs). Also the ibm jre and sdk if you need them. Let me know how the download speed is.


The links no longer seem to work, but do you have the files still available, please?
