Description arziman 2005-01-25 13:17:08 UTC
I have Debian Woody with glib2.2. When trying to install OO1.1.2-4, 
it stops immediately saying no glib2.3 found. In system requirements page 
glib 2.2.0 is said to be enoug.

Have you downloaded the OOo files from an OOo site? 
Comment 2 arziman 2005-01-26 08:08:57 UTC
Yes, from the finnish native project site (, finnish versions.
Comment 3 Olaf Felka 2005-01-26 09:59:50 UTC
I've tested with the downloaded version from No problem, OOo 1.1.4
runs fine with glibc 2.2.5. This issue depends on the finnish native project.
Please ressign to a responsible person in this projekt.

Hello arziman,
please proceed and decide if this issue is valid (-> NEW) or invalid (-> Invalid
-> close).

This issue is invalid/cannot be solved by modifying OOo itself.

-> reassigning to fi, confirming.
They can resolve invalid/worksforme. (but at least the download-page should be
updated according to the real requirements of the fi-build lists glibc 2.2.0 )

The requirements are those of the build-host. So when OOo is compiled on a
"newer" system, it will require a newer version of glibc.

There is nothing OOo can do about that, only the builder can either use another
build-system or use a "wrapper" to glibc that avoids the dependency.

I've never tested such a wrapper myself, but you ( may give apbuild from a try
