there's a problem using openOffice.org
), stable as well as unstable,
with KDE 4.5.2. (there's a forum thread about this here:
-- at least one other user noticed the
openOffice crashes when trying to "view data source" (F4) with an error message
about floating point this-or-that (don't have it installed anymore, and didn't
have debug sources installed at the time). i noticed a similar problem a few months ago,
which was solved by changing java from openjkd to sun. at this time i was using sun's
java already, and even installed different versions (1.5, 1.6, 1.7), all of which produced
the same error.
next i upgraded to OO.o unstable, with the same result. for good measure i tried replacing
the OO.o repo with libreOffice, also getting the same result. thinking it might have to do
with the latest nvidia driver (260.19.12), which seems to cause problems for many KDE
4.5.2 users i disabled the nvidia driver, running nuveau instead, and logged into the
awesome destop env.
under awesome libreOffice worked fine, displaying "data sources" without
crash--even after i re-enabled the latest nvidia driver. this leads me to think that
there's a problem between openSUSE's OO.o repos & KDE 4.5.2.
next i installed OO.o from it's original website, version 3.3 (RC), and found that
this works--with or without nvidia driver, and under KDE 4.5.2 as well: no crashes. at
present i'm still using sun java 1.7
), but i'll try the
stable OO.o tarball and different java versions later today.
i'm not sure now where this bug comes from: KDE, openOffice, or go-office, which
seems to be the source of the openSUSE OO.o repos. what should i do now?
