As far as I remember , openoffice-3 doesnt uses myspell packages. It has its
own spelling dictionaries. But i am not 100% sure about that ...

As far as I remember , openoffice-3 doesnt uses myspell packages. It has its

own spelling dictionaries. But i am not 100% sure about that ...
After upgraded to version 3, I installed the portuguese dictionary by openoffice extension (downloaded from openoffice extension site).

So, I dont use myspell dictionaries anymore and unmerge it.

Well, I quoted that from the message after OOo was done compiling. I
would assume that whoever put that message there knows what OOo uses. I
have no clue myself. Mine just works, so far at least.

My machine has 13380, so it looks like the ebuild hasn't been updated on your mirror yet. Maybe try emerge --sync again or try it against a different mirror.

For most distros (I guess) and Windows and Apple, that's right. But it
isn't the Gentoo way.

I really wish they wouldn't do that, especially for hang or crash
bugs. I know people without the problem don't want to recompile OOo,
but it's annoying to have to watch bugzilla or the changelog to see if
the ebuild has been fixed.

I haven't tried a lot of things, but this little RTF file
gets it wedged right
away: the console that started it says:

error - missing word count in dictionary file
Hash Manager Error : 4

So I'm guessing there's a problem in a spell checker. Where would I
look to solve that?

You need to emerge --sync again (there's an update to the ebuild, but
no version increment IIRC) and rebuild openoffice.

I agree. This should only be done for build problems, not runtime
problems. I think there's even a policy in place for that; if it
doesn't build, change the ebuild. If it crashes at runtime, bump the
revision.

I wish I could be so lucky. After reading some of the comments here,
I re-synced,
unmerged Ooo, and emerged openoffice and hunspell. I already had the myspell-en
build.

The result: a clean compile, as near as I can tell, but useless. Now it quits
silently a second or so into any startup, with or without a filename on the
command line. No message on the terminal where
I start it, and no clue I can see about what's wrong.

I'm back to MSOffice. I hate it but it works.

Default openoffice 3 broken?

Hi
I have am new to Gentoo. My previous experience is with slackware . I
Downloaded the Live CD and installed Gentoo twice .. but the problem is
Grub is not installed. I have a dual boot with Widowz and Grub for dos
... So I tried it using the grub console
>root (hd0,4)
>kernel (hd0,4)/ --> and when I tab here I cant list the content.

So I used the live CD and chrooted to the installed environment . there
I realized that I don't have any files for my hdd in the /dev/ folder
... Is this the issue... Please advise me . Cuz I went trough the
installation twice ..,

Tks regards ...

Ok, first thing to do is resubmit this post with a useful subject title :-)

Many people like to file things away or ignore stuff that they're not interested in, so the subject is important.
