Upon starting, OOO 1.1.0 (645m19(Build:8693)) induces network activity, which fires up dialup connection. This may be annoying because OOO waits for the dialup connection to be up before it even displays the splash screen and goes further with the loading process. In my case, this can take 1-2 minutes using a "56k modem" kind of connection. I am using Linux slackware 9.1, with loopback network configured, and with a pppd daemon waiting for network accesses and firing up the dialup connection automatically. I have read another issue (16186) which says that such problems may be related to the use of gethostbyname() by OOO. Just in case, I paste below my /etc/hosts and /etc/resolv.conf + output of ifconfig (with ppp connection up). root@normaskompi:~# cat /etc/hosts # # hosts This file describes a number of hostname-to-address # mappings for the TCP/IP subsystem. It is mostly # used at boot time, when no name servers are running. # On small systems, this file can be used instead of a # "named" name server. Just add the names, addresses # and any aliases to this file... # # By the way, Arnt Gulbrandsen <firstname.lastname@example.org> says that 127.0.0.1 # should NEVER be named with the name of the machine. It causes problems # for some (stupid) programs, irc and reputedly talk. :^) # # For loopbacking. 127.0.0.1 localhost # This next entry is technically wrong, but good enough to get TCP/IP apps # to quit complaining that they can't verify the hostname on a loopback-only # Linux box. 127.0.0.1 normaskompi # End of hosts. root@normaskompi:~# cat /etc/HOSTNAME normaskompi root@normaskompi:~# ifconfig lo Link encap:Local Loopback inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0 UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1 RX packets:10 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:10 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 RX bytes:458 (458.0 b) TX bytes:458 (458.0 b) ppp0 Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol inet addr:126.96.36.199 P-t-P:188.8.131.52 Mask:255.255.255.255 UP POINTOPOINT RUNNING NOARP MULTICAST MTU:1514 Metric:1 RX packets:1271 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:1298 errors:0 dropped:20 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:3 RX bytes:1170011 (1.1 Mb) TX bytes:168742 (164.7 Kb) root@normaskompi:~# cat /etc/resolv.conf search freesurf.ch nameserver 184.108.40.206 nameserver 220.127.116.11 nameserver 18.104.22.168 root@normaskompi:~#

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on my owner to the owner "requirements".
