Description r4zoli 2010-07-28 13:21:43 UTC
OOO330_m2 problem, can not set in versions. I installed OOO330_m2, into separate (parallel to OOo 3.2.1, and DEV300_m85) folder(C:\Program Files\OOO330\) with russian langpack. Added some extensions as administrator for all users, mysql native driver 1.0.1 (from qa-upload)- without problem, postgresql 076a (from dba.openoffice.org page)- some cache error message, but later And hu_HU dictionary- without problems. Restarted OOo as normal user. Changed UI language to Russian tested with database odb files, connected to external servers, to find a missing translations. Restarted OOo. Tested connections, and other dba issues. When finished changed back UI settings to English (USA), closed OOo. When I tried to start OOo I get error: The application cannot be started. A general error occurred while accessing your central configuration.

I figured out if I delete user profile OOo starts. The postgresql-sdbc-076a driver cause OOo to not start. It is independent from language settings. When installed with extension manager for all user, or current user, get error message attached as screen shot. If you close OOo, try to restart OOo I get error: The application cannot be started. A general error occurred while accessing your central configuration. I don't know who is responsible for it.

How to proceed since jbu isn't reacting on this issue?
Comment 5 joergbudi 2010-08-03 20:07:04 UTC
Please retry with http://dba.openoffice.org/drivers/postgresql/postgresql-sdbc-0.7.6b.zip, I have removed the DataAccess.xcu, which was only there to support OOo 3.1 and earlier builds. In 3.2, a new configuration scheme for sdbc drivers was introduced (postgresql.xcu), however the older file didn't do any harm, this seems to change with the current builds. When this works, I will change the drivers homepage accordingly. Bye, Joerg -- I won't be able to support the driver in the next years anymore, simply no spare time left anymore, that's why it took so long ...
Comment 6 r4zoli 2010-08-04 14:04:39 UTC
I tested the postgresql-sdbc-0.7.6b.zip, and can install it without any further problem. I think the issue fixed.
Comment 7 Olaf Felka 2010-08-04 14:10:15 UTC
Thanks for fixing and testing!
Comment 8 joergbudi 2010-08-12 20:33:17 UTC
updated drivers homepage http://dba.openoffice.org/drivers/postgresql/index.html
Comment 9 rene 2010-11-15 15:19:21 UTC
jbu: but you didn't commit it. did you? I only see 0.7.6a tagged. How should people packaging this then get the identical source code to what your version gets from (I can remove all the DataAccess pieces myself, but...) As long as it's only somewhere else, it's not fixed *in the tree*. Reopen.
Comment 10 rene 2010-11-15 15:30:29 UTC
(and before you say that it is not in the tree - if it should be do then you need to update your docs on how to get the source code and build it. (I now assumed http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/build/commit/?id=8bea420b58fa4e392df73bdb47152c0960b9f2a1 and http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/build/commit/?id=9ebd83a5a741bc49341f356bd255708a5c97bffd)
Comment 11 ftoth 2011-05-17 22:32:42 UTC
It is great that it installs, but does it work? I am not able to add /edit records using this driver either directly in a table or through a form. The add record icon in the record selector is disabled, and changing an existing record is just not possible. Note that using the jdbc driver I can edit/add records, our postgres server is running unchanged for over 2 years. Note, this problem occurs with OO 3.3 (from OO downloads on linux x32), LO 3.3 ( amd64, x32) and LO winxp. The driver 0.7.6a with OO 3.2.1 and LO 3.2.1 works fine. This is pretty bad because the alternative jdbc is pretty slow or even d*mned slow depending on the java version used (this is no exaggeration, I mean retrieving 10 records per second using SUN jre 1.6.24. Don't believe me? Try it!). Please, pretty please fix this, we do use this for serious stuff (billing). Ferry

FYI, next 4.2.0 will embed a native driver: http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/openoffice-dev/201708.mbox/%3CCAJm2B-nGsb4-6dwHV9qcBus-u-dC%3D1vxL%2Bcae1VsUhAUpkx%3DjQ%40mail.gmail.com%3E
