compiling Open Office


Hello all.

I'm trying to configure open office and i'm not making much progress. I don't know how many of you have done this before, or even attempt to do it, hopefully there are some with experience. I've gotten past the java errors and gpc, that was easy. Now i'm getting this error that doesn't tell me anything helpful, so i'm stuck.

here is the output, the last 30 lines or so:

* Setting up the build environment variables. *
* *
********************************************************************

This is exactly where i get suck ^^^. has anyone ran into this before? I can't figure out what its wanting to open or what its even looking for.

by the way the system is running on slamd64.

Thanks!

I managed to get OOo2.0 to build on an (B)LFS 6.0 system using the the build-instructions found here http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/~dj/OOo_2.0/ with the following modifications

gcc version used was 3.3.4
java version 1.4.2

I only used the nptl and pkgconfig patches.

add a symllink for stlport as decribed in the 1.1.5 BLFS docs
ie
Code:
 
ln -sf /opt/gcc-3.3.4/include/c++/3.3.4 /usr/g++-v3
configured it with the following (you probably won't need --disable-gnome-vfs if you use gnome)
Code:
./configure --prefix=/opt/openoffice-2.0 \
    --enable-libart --enable-libsn \
    --disable-fontooo --without-fonts \
    --with-system-stdlibs --with-system-freetype \
    --with-system-zlib --with-system-jpeg \
    --with-system-expat --with-system-libxml \
    --with-system-curl --enable-build-mozilla \
    --with-build-version=BLFS-20051020 \
    --with-package-format=native --disable-binfilter \
    --with-lang=ENUS --with-dict=ENUS --disable-gnome-vfs
set the environment
Code:
umask 0022 &&
unset LANG LC_ALL
build it with
Code:
./bootstrap &&
source LinuxIntelEnv.Set.sh &&
dmake
the installation sets end up in
instsetoo_native/unxlngi4.pro/OpenOffice/install/en-US/linux-2.6-intel/buildroot/


These instructions are only meant as a guide, you will have to adjust them to suit your distro.


Good luck

Mad.

Thanks for all the info foo_bar_foo, madluther. I have moved onto OOo2.0 seeing that it is now available, and was making some progess with that. Now i've got a new problem. Here are the bits of output related:

checking for perl... /usr/bin/perl
checking the Perl version... checked (perl 5)
checking for required Perl modules... Can't locate Archive/Zip.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.7/x86_64-linux /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.7 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7/x86_64-linux /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl .) at -e line 1.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at -e line 1.
configure: error: Failed to find some modules

I am stumped on this one too. I've got pearl installed and from the look of it its lookinng for modules that i don't have installed. I've checked the internet and it seems i've got the latest perl installed. Any suggestions?

You're missing some perl modules, these are generally fairly easy to install, the LFS site has instructions on this as well http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs...l-modules.html

Towards the bottom of this page are the generic build instructions. I generally use the auto method
Code:
perl -MCPAN -e shell
as this can download and build any dependcies your desired module may have.

You will need to install the Archive::Zip and XML::Parser modules.

AFAIK OOo doesn't compile in 64-bit. You have to compile it for 32-bit and run it in a system with 32-bit libraries.
