No, if the package fails to build what do I lose? except time of
course. The package will stay where it is right?
I don't if I should wait for the port maintainer to remove this by
him/her(self); it is marked for a reason. In one of the machines I
went with legacy, but the two at home, I have skipped updating this
port. It is segfaulting and dropped an soffice.core in ~/ (home
directory). It was working fine, but now I don't know if I should or
not update it.
Has anyone updated to latest? and is it recommended to try and build
Thanks & sorry for asking. I am not sure what to do here :(
