Hi,

Look at Raspberry Pi deserves Slackware

I believe Eric's working on getting things setup for the Pi. Even though the first production units are becoming available, it will be some time before distribution is setup world wide.

Just my :twocents:

Plus, I want one to play with! :)

HTH!

LibreOffice on Slackware
 
(Never mind, I misread his original post. This can be deleted.)

Interesting.
Thanks.

But no LibreOffice SlackBuild :/.

If you want to try and compile LibreOffice for ARM platform why don't you see how far you get using http://connie.slackware.com/~alien/s...eoffice/build/ . Download the whole directory, start the SlackBuild and watch where it explodes.

At JAVA_HOME unbound variable !

Gosh, i didn't realized there's no java in ARMedSlack !

Alien Bob also has a blog post on using OpenJDK on Slackware, where he mentions,

Not sure if he ever tested his OpenJDK SlackBuild on ARM but you could either wait for him to confirm or try it yourself. ;)

Oh, I can already confirm that I successfully built OpenJDK packages on ARM platform using a slightly modified version of my SlackBuild.
My own ARM port is (not yet) public but MoZes (the armedslack maintainer) is dead set on compiling the same openjdk packages on armedslack - he already has the SlackBuild plus other sources.

Re the Java thing, if I recall correct Java is only needed for certain database conversion and/or import. If you only want to use it for the word processor can't you build it without Java?

Alien Bob 03-23-2012 11:42 AM

You need a java compiler to compile (parts of) LibreOffice. The developers are working hard toward eliminating this requirement, but I do not know the status of LibreOffice 3.5 because so far I was unable to produce a package for that release :-(

I tried to build openjdk, but it looks for a working java home.

I created /usr/lib/java, and i complains that native2ascii doesn't exists.

So i presume java is needed ?

Alien Bob 03-26-2012 07:57 AM

Yes, a working JDK is needed in order to compile OpenJDK. This looks like a chicken & egg problem on the ARM platform but in fact there is a way around this. My openjdk.SlackBuild script has a BOOTSTRAP variable which (if set to "YES") allows for the use of GCC's java as the bootstrap JDK. In the bootstrap case, OpenJDK will use a limited subset of Java which GCC's java can fulfill.

gcc-java is installed, i set BOOTSTRAP to yes, but it's still looking for /usr/lib/jvm and configure ends with an error :/.

Alien Bob 03-26-2012 06:53 PM

Well that is a complete error log! It's completely clear to me why it fails for you.

Hint: you'll need {armedslack|slackware}-current

Sry, i'm a bit over-linuxed since december and i'm also sick.
Anyway the error was kinda "looking for /usr/lib/jvm but it doesn't exist so report this complete error log to Alien Bob" :^)

I'm on 13.37. Impossible to build on it without modifying a lot ?
