Has anybody been able to get OpenOffice installed from port on 5.3-RELEASE ?
I am running 5.3-RELEASE-p2 (Xorg and JDK1.4.2p7 also installed)
Yesterday, I attempted:
# portinstall openoffice
and chose editors/openoffice-1.1
14 hours later.......
the output looked like it built cleanly, but during the install phase it
./install.sh not found
error code 127
Sigh......it's always OpenOffice that gives me headaches.
I tried to just do a pkg_add -rv openoffice and that got me
openoffice-1.1.2, which I guess I could live with until it gets fixed,
but then I discovered during 'openoffice-1.1.2-setup' that characters
were overlapping in all of the dialogs and menus. I don't know if that
was a problem with my display or the character set/language, but I just
ripped out the package in frustration.
