Description jss2 2008-12-22 11:17:19 UTC
Using the .deb packages from, writer works fine on Debian Etch workstations and thin clients,
but fails on Debian Etch diskless workstations. 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 symbol db_create, version DB_4_2 not defined in file with link time reference

libdb 4.2 is installed. Comparing the output of "find /opt/* |
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:

$ openoffice.org3 -writer
