Description jss2 2008-12-22 11:17:19 UTC
Using the .deb packages from
http://ftp.linux.cz/pub/localization/OpenOffice.org/devel/OOO300/OOO300_m9/Build-2/OOo_3.0.0_LinuxX86_install_nb_deb.tar.gz,
OpenOffice.org writer works fine on Debian Etch workstations and thin clients,
but fails on Debian Etch diskless workstations. OpenOffice.org was installed in
the diskless chroot as follows:
# mount --bind DEBS /chroot/mnt
# mount --bind /proc /chroot/proc
# chroot /chroot
# cd /mnt
# dpkg -i *.deb desktop-integration/*.deb

These are the error messages (from running openoffice.org3 -writer):

/opt/openoffice.org3/program/soffice.bin: relocation error:
/opt/openoffice.org3/program/../basis-link/program/libdeploymentmiscl
i.so: symbol db_create, version DB_4_2 not defined in file
libdb-4.2.so with link time reference

libdb 4.2 is installed. Comparing the output of "find /opt/openoffice.org* |
sort" on a workstation and in the diskless chroot, there are no differences.

Framework issue.
Comment 2 jss2 2009-01-07 11:38:22 UTC
After further testing:

this doesn't happen everywhere, and is probably not related to diskless
workstations. The following workaround enables writer to start:

$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/openoffice.org/basis3.0/program:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
$ openoffice.org3 -writer
