Description Sammy 2003-12-09 10:50:35 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.1; Linux; X11; , en_US, en)

Description of problem:
The last two versions fail to start and end with a Abort statement.
When I look under /usr/lib/openoffice/programs I see a bunch of
soffice*.bin files and a link to soffice2.bin from soffice.bin. This is
aborthing. If I link soffice.bin to either soffice1.bin or soffice3.bin
than it works fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install openoffice.org-1.1.0-9
2. start any openoffice component

Can you get a backtrace at all and post it here?

Then, try 'prelink -u /usr/lib/openoffice/program/soffice2.bin' to
un-prelink the binary and see if the problem still exists.
Comment 2 Sammy 2003-12-09 12:20:32 EST
I can't get a backtrace. 
When I tried the prelink line I get: 
# prelink -u /usr/lib/openoffice/program/soffice2.bin 
prelink: /usr/lib/openoffice/program/soffice2.bin does not 
have .gnu.prelink_undo section 
Comment 3 Jakub Jelinek 2003-12-09 13:11:17 EST
Do you have prelink disabled? cat /etc/sysconfig/prelink
should tell.
Comment 4 Sammy 2003-12-09 13:33:29 EST
$  cat /etc/sysconfig/prelink 
# Set this to no to disable prelinking altogether 
# (if you change this from yes to no prelink -ua 
# will be run next night to undo prelinking) 
# Options to pass to prelink 
# -m    Try to conserve virtual memory by allowing overlapping 
#       assigned virtual memory slots for libraries which 
#       never appear together in one binary 
# -R    Randomize virtual memory slot assignments for libraries. 
#       This makes it slightly harder for various buffer overflow 
#       attacks, since library addresses will be different on each 
#       host using -R. 
# How often should full prelink be run (in days) 
# Normally, prelink will be run in quick mode, every 
# $PRELINK_FULL_TIME_INTERVAL days it will be run 
# in normal mode.  Comment it out if it should be run 
# in normal mode always.

Please try current OOo 1.1.0, and reopen if problem still occurs
