Sorry, I misread the ie7 as i7.

I'd still use the source build, as long as it could be completed either
overnight or while you are out as work.

OK, if you want to play genlop Top Trumps

[root@hactar ~ 0]% genlop -t libreoffice
* app-office/libreoffice

Wed Feb 15 10:23:58 2012 >>> app-office/libreoffice-3.5.0.3
merge time: 40 minutes and 52 seconds.

Incidentally, the full output from genlop -t shows a steady decrease in
build times as version numbers increase. It looks like optimisation of
the old OOo code is ongoing.

Actually I would ascribe it more to the libreoffice ebuild maintainers
getting rid of insane amounts of bundled crap in the OOo codebase and
instead building against the versions already in @world.

The ebuild maintainer was quite active on Gentoo's planet a few months
back, giving feedback to users and asking for testers. The amount of
progress being made in unbundling OOo's shit was quite impressive (to
put it mildly)

Impressive. What's your hardware configuration, Neil?

Hmm ... I've got a 1st generation i7 on my laptop and it is no-where near that
fast. :-(

Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU Q 720 @ 1.60GHz with 4G RAM.


Sun Jan 29 21:47:46 2012 >>> app-office/libreoffice-3.4.5.2
merge time: 1 hour, 34 minutes and 43 seconds.

Is it just down to the CPU or are you running /var/tmp/portage on some turbo-
charged fs?

Yes. Perhaps i should consider using the source myself, because of

hafi@i5_64 ~ $ loffice
/usr/bin/loffice: line 2: 12258 Illegal instruction
/usr/lib64/libreoffice/program/soffice "$@"

which i just got with an i5. Should i? Should i wait for a fixed
libreoffice-bin? Hm.

Just plain old ext2. Laptops tend to have slower IO whereas I'm using
RAID1 on SATA3 hardware. Plus it is a newer CPU.

The case for compiling libreoffice is getting better all the time. Even
on older slower machines, build time is gradually coming down as the
ebuild maintainers strip out all the bundled libs that Sun added and
use system libs instead.

The days of >12 hour compiles for OOo are long gone (thankfully)

IO does really slow down the compilation progress a lot. Having PORTAGE_TMPDIR
on tmpfs saves about half an hour (compared to reiserfs on a 7200rpm disk) for
me :
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz
Thu Feb 16 17:42:35 2012 >>> app-office/libreoffice-3.5.0.3
merge time: 50 minutes and 39 seconds.

With 4GB Ram thats not an option for you though...
