There have been comments about problems with
openoffice freezing when saving or opening files. It
appears to involve language/locale stuff. For me, the
following seems to work with the 2.4 package (perhaps
not with 2.3.1_1) on 6.3-RELEASE.
1. As root, edit /etc/login.conf to set your system
language. Mine is now:
# diff /etc/login.conf.0 /etc/login.conf
2. As root, update the login.conf.db:
# cap_mkdb /etc/login.conf
3. Log out and log in again.
# echo $LANG
4. As root, force openoffice to use your language (the
-f seems critical):
# openoffice.org-SRC680_m242-setofficelang -a -f en-US
(Note that's en-US, not en_US.)
(The user who's going to run openoffice might need to
do the same thing. It also might help, if problems
persist, to remove/rename your ~/.openoffice.org2
directory and start fresh.)
