Default Openoffice dies on startup

I hadn't used it for a month or so. Perhaps it got resentful.
Anyway, recent attempts to start any flavor of OpenOffice have failed
early.

It does ask about plugins, and whether it shour restore my session,
but shortly after that it simply dies. There's no dialog box,
and nothing obvious in the log files.

I've done revdep-rebuild, and its clean. Then I re-emerged
openoffice-bin (which is what I use). To no avail.

Any ideas?

Have you upgraded python recently? I upgraded mine a while back and OOo
needed to recompile. You may want to run python-updater and check what
it says. It may be something else that OOo depends on that needs to
recompile. Not real sure since you use the binary version.


Hope that helps.

to see where it's dying, can you run:
$ gdb /usr/lib/openoffice/program/soffice.bin
and then when it dies in the gdb prompt:
(gdb) thread apply all bt
and post the output

This might not show much, if you use openoffice-bin, we'll see.

First thing I do in such cases is to start the thing from a shell, to see
what's printed on stderr/stdout. Most of the times this gives valuable hints.

emerge -C openoffice-bin && emerge openoffice

openoffice-bin has been compiled with a given set of use flags and on a
machine that may or may not match what you have. Compiling it yourself is
always the better idea.

Not so obviously better when it fails. Here's the tail of what I get:

You may be right. I tried to recompile OOo, and it pulled in 8 or so packages
that OOo-bin hadn't. Unfortunately, the compile eventually failed.

I'm running python-updater now. I'll report results.

You do have enough free space in the build directory (~6G)?

Apparently not. I just had something else fail, and I'm moving stuff around.
That's probably a major part of what's plagueing me now.
