The story of my life :-) > I am getting the impression this is very filthy code. Couldn't possibly comment! Not sure I can help directly with this one but ...... 1. Is your ports tree up to date? And have you run pkgdb -F lately just to make the database is in good shape? I'm pretty sure that's NOT the problem here but never does any harm to check :-) 2. There are ways around building openoffice natively. This was a major step for me as I need the thing occasionally and my hardware is too antique to build it that way. You can either A. Install a native FreeBSD binary package - take a look in ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-7-stable/ I'm told this should run on a -7.0-release system too. But no guarantees! B. Install a *Linux* binary and run that through FreeBSD's compatibility set-up. This is what I am currently doing and it works perfectly as far as I can tell. Detailed instructions here http://www.math.colostate.edu/~reinholz/freebsd/linux_openoffice.html One other thought - it helps if you reply _beneath_ the person to whom you are replying. That way Question and Answer follow in logical order, which helps if there are several layers of Q and A hth Glyn _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
