Rock Pi 4 - Slarm64: Failure launching LibreOffice


Hi,
on my Rock Pi 4 with slarm64 as OS, I've installed LibreOffice 6.4.0.3 from http://dl.fail.pp.ua/slackware/packages/aarch64/xap/.
First it failed launching, throwing the error message:
Code:
/usr/lib64/libreoffice/program/soffice.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libboost_locale.so.1.72.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Installed is boost 1.73, so I did a quick and dirty fix (as root):
Code:
cd /usr/lib64/
for L in libboost_*1.73.0; do ln -sv "$L" "${L//73/72}"; done
Now it starts to launch without any error on CLI, but stops with a small error message dialog window (screenshot attached).
BTW, I'm running the MATE desktop 1.24 as GUI (compiled from msb github page).

Any Idea how to fix that?

This should work on an updated slarm64 (w/ boost 1.73), no extra dependencies needed:

Thank for the updates.
I tested both versions, but I always get the error message dialog box, shown in the screenshot of my first post.
That's not only in a MATE desktop session but also in a fluxbox session the same error message pops up when trying to launch LO.

which shows: ldd /usr/lib64/libreoffice/program/soffice.bin

Code:
ldd /usr/lib64/libreoffice/program/soffice.bin | grep boost
	libboost_locale.so.1.73.0 => /usr/lib64/libboost_locale.so.1.73.0 (0x0000007fa69b1000)
	libboost_system.so.1.73.0 => /usr/lib64/libboost_system.so.1.73.0 (0x0000007fa5d1b000)
	libboost_iostreams.so.1.73.0 => /usr/lib64/libboost_iostreams.so.1.73.0 (0x0000007fa5cf2000)
	libboost_filesystem.so.1.73.0 => /usr/lib64/libboost_filesystem.so.1.73.0 (0x0000007fa5cc7000)
	libboost_chrono.so.1.73.0 => /usr/lib64/libboost_chrono.so.1.73.0 (0x0000007fa5bfe000)
	libboost_thread.so.1.73.0 => /usr/lib64/libboost_thread.so.1.73.0 (0x0000007fa5bcc000)
maybe one of the dependent libraries refers to the old boost.

The boost error message for which I made the symlinks shown in my first post are gone.
The only error message I still get is on the GUI (see screenshot image in my first post).

I also am not getting any error dialogs; using JWM as my DE, FWIW.

Have you tried one of the stock DE's by chance? XFCE is probably the easiest to check. It would be good to rule out MATE as the culprit.

Thanks for testing and confirming that it's working for you.
Now I also tested it in Xfce and KDE, all with the same error message in a GUI popup window.
So there's something wrong with my system, a missing package or configuration, I guess. LibreOffice seems to be the only program showing this error.
All other installed office programs like Scribus, Gnumeric, Inkcape, Calligra and Lyx work perfectly fine. So I think I'll stick with those instead of LibreOffice until I find out what's wrong.

it's a pity, I would look ldd for the lack of missing libraries, and you can also try to create a new user and try on his desktop.
but they added support for aarch64 in msb

Now I created a new user account, made no changes in the profile settings and tested it in Xfce and MATE, but still no success.

LibreOffice is working now on my machine, but I don't know why it didn't before. Maybe one of the latest package updates did it make work.

However, this is solved.
