First of all I have to remind here, that I have commented out the lines concerning "SAL_ENABLE_FILE_LOCKING" from the soffice-script. This is not the same issue, what many people have been posting. And I have only seen this problem with SuSe 10.1, with all other distros it works with the same OpenOffice.org-version (2.0.2).
SimpleTech SimpleShare NAS with the latest firmware.
Mandriva 2006 and SuSe 10.1. The NFS-drive is mounted with the following options: rw,nosuid,hard,intr,rsize=8192,wsize=8192
When trying to open anything from the mounted NFS-drive with OpenOffice.org in SuSe 10.1, it loads up to the last point in the splash screen's progress bar, then completely freezes. 10 - 20 minutes later I command "killall soffice.bin", as it hasn't gone anywhere. I have tried to open the documents by double-clicking it from a file manager (Konqueror/Nautilus), from the command-line ("ooffice document", will not give any errors or debug-info) and with File->Open from OpenOffice.org itself, all with the same result.
In Mandriva OOo 2.0.2 (installed from the official OOo-site, the RPM-packages) opens documents from the NFS-drive perfectly, but not in SuSe. Tried also uninstalling the SuSe OOo-packages and installing the same RPM-packages from the official OOo-site, what I use in Mandriva. Same result.
I can open local documents, no problem there. Haven't tried Samba. All other programs than OpenOffice.org work perfectly with the NFS-drive in SuSe 10.1. Opening files with OpenOffice.org from NFS-drives won't work, but this only happens in SuSe 10.1. This is a serious issue that prevents me from switching to SuSe. Would be really grateful if someone has a slightest idea of what might be wrong here.
Add "nolock"-option to NFS-mount options on the client side. So:
Also remember to comment out the "SAL_ENABLE_FILE_LOCKING"-lines (2 of them) from /usr/lib/ooo-2.0/program/soffice. That is, of course, unless you are really using NFS-locking.
