Peter Novodvorsky has produced a document explaining how to
build OpenOffice on Debian which he says will likely help with the
process on other distributions, too:
Probably it will work on any other modern distribution, but I tried
System requires: Good processor, 128 Mb (256MB better),
2,5 Gb hard disk space.
Needed software and files:
- OpenOffice 638C from CVS (I didn't try 640).
- STLPort _4.0_ You won't build it with debian's 4.1
package. You can get package diff from here
and stlport4.0 from stlport.com, and then build package
yourself (Currently I don't have enough connection
to put binaries)
- gcc 2.95.x.
- Java JDK 1.3.1. You can get it from blackdown.org:
deb ftp://metalab.unc.edu/pub/linux/devel/lang/java/blackdown.org/debian woody non-free
This JDK package is extremly bad (it puts everything in /usr/java).
If you want, you can make FHS-compilant package with JDK1.3.1,
But you'll need to emulate java home, like we will do with
STLPort (see below).
- Sources for libgpcl0. (apt-get --tar-only source libgpcl0)
