If I remember correctly I built it with the default slackbuild on a Qemu VM of 64-14.2 with updates installed.
So nothing special
Hope that helps
john

I voiced the opinion in https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...00#post5970800

that "LO has some way to go before being production ready for a pure qt5 kde plasma environment."

I switched to libreoffice (from openoffice) when it supported importing my old lotus wordpro files. As with anything that Oracle has touched, openoffice stopped getting updates, so I switched, and I haven't looked back. thanks Eric for his build of LO which I use on Slackware. Going back a year or two I had problems with calc crashing when using scripting for a fancy spreadsheet, but after reporting it, and going through some diagnostics with devs, the devs fixed the bug, so that it stopped crashing. So if you are prepared to do some work, you can get some problems fixed, which is more than can be said for bugs I've found on other office suites.
The down site is it (LO) needs java for scripting and accessibility support, and is a bit slow to start, even on a modern pc with ssd.

On my test machine one of my applications became unusable in a KDE5 environment when using the LibreOffice 6.2.x series. That bug has been fixed in 6.2.3 so I'm waiting until then.

btw the bug revealed itself in a base application when displaying a growing progress bar. The whole screen turned white with a noticeable flicker. Not pleasant when repeating many times a second for several minutes. One had to have faith and believe that the application hadn't crashed. The bug also revealed itself in one or more of the LibreOffice wizards. The bug was only seen in KDE5 environments.

Everybody's mileage will be different, just depends how heavily you use LibreOffice.

My production machines are 14.2 using KDE4 where the application behaved without error using the LibreOffice 6.2.x series.

gawk-5.0.0 and LibreOffice-6.2.2

Hello all;
Just a quick note here:
I am on slackware64 current with ALL latest update. I had to rebuild LibreOffice-6.2.2 from slackbuild source: (https://github.com/Ponce/slackbuilds...ce/LibreOffice) after boost upgrade to 1.70.0, the build failed with gawk error about namespace ... I downgraded gawk to previous version (gawk-4.2.1-x86_64-3) and was able to build LibreOffice successfully. "gawk*" went into my slackpkg blacklist file.

Wael

And Eric has released it for -current. I tried to build it yesterday using his script after changing the version number but that effort went south citing missing files in the /tmp area. I've installed 6.2.4 from Eric and it runs fine.
