Does anybody have a SlackBuild for Libre Office (ARM).

Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

It would be possible to build OpenJDK on Slackware ARM 13.37 ... I did the same for Slackware 13.37. But you have to tweak the installation of gcc and seamonkey for that.
There are two scripts which I wrote that apply these tweaks. They are in my openjdk/build directory: create_gcj_jvm.sh
and fix_seamonkey_pkgconfig.sh. Run both of them, once. The change will be permanent for gcc (basically it will add a directory structure with a lot of symlinks and this will not alter any of the existing gcc files). The change willnot be permanent for seamonkey: it will be undone when you upgrade that package.
After running those two scripts, try compiling openjdk again. And remove any old Sun/Oracle JDK/JRE first! And logout/login again.

Ah yes, this is a bug in the packaging of the gcc compilers, which was fixed in Slackware-current.
The gnative2ascii program is mistakenly present in the gcc-gnat package. Install that and try again.
Better even: do a full Slackware install and then try again. I usually do not support failed compilations on non-full Slackware installations.
I uploaded my LibreOffice 3.5.2 packages earlier today. The SlackBuild I used for those, is the same which is compiling LibreOffice on my trimslice at the moment (going at it for a day already): http://slackware.com/~alien/slackbui...ice.SlackBuild . Note that the build directory contains two patches specific to ARM and gcc 4.7. Let's hope the build succeeds before the trimslice runs out of diskspace... like it did yesterday.
Needless to say that I am building on a slackware-current port for ARM. It needs Java and gcj will not do. You will need OpenJDK which I could only compile on -current for ARM (needed a recent gcc and glibc).
