OpenOffice.org 1.1.4 not working in Slack 10.1


Dear Slackers,

since I have upgraded from Slackware 10.0 to 10.1 my OpenOffice.org 1.1.4 (German) is no longer working. As nothing else helped I reinstalled it, but:

(1) Starting from the KDE start menu the mouse pointer takes on the shape of an OOo icon, depending on the OOo app chosen. But after 30 seconds or so the mouse pointer takes on its usual shape again, and nothing more happens.

(2) When I cd into ~/.../programs/OpenOffice1.1.4.org and type ./soffice I get the following error message:

gargamel@somehost:~/.../programs/OpenOffice.org1.1.4$ ./soffice
*** glibc detected *** free(): invalid pointer: 0x41333c94 ***
Abgebrochen

It works as root, however! So it's probably got something to do with access rights...

Can anyone give me a clue what's wrong, here?

Thanks in advance!

I tried various things:

(1) Multiuser install as root, then workstaion install as user.
Installation went through without problems. The following workstation installation as normal user complained about some DRM problem (whatever that means), but went through, too. However, trying to run OOo I ran into the prob described.

(2) Local install as user.
This gives me the error message mentioned immediately, ie: I can't install as normal user.

(3) Local install as root.
This works, and I can run OOo as root. But that's not what I want....

Thanks again

I just received some information from some very helpful distribution maintainer known for a distro called Slackware that it's probably a bug in OOo not working with glibc 2.3.4. Thanks, Pat! 8-)

I filed an issue in the OOo bug tracker. Issue number is 43109, in case somebody is interested.
