I want to take a look at Open Office, and want to build from source. I
believe I understand that this is a rather adventurous undertaking;
requiring Gigabytes of space and copious amounts of time.
I also note that there are download and license issues with one of the
java-related bits....something about a manual fetch of the development
kit, from what little I have read?
My other question has to do with gotchas, or tips; are there any
common things a first-time builder might want to know? Or does the
build from source just work?
I have nearly 5 Gig in /var/ and ~26-27 Gig in /usr, with 1 Gig of RAM
and plenty of time; I don't think the build will encounter issues
Thank you, and best regards,
My eyes want to sleep; but the skull is no pillow.
