Description Chris Lee 2004-10-23 00:28:39 UTC
Build Identifier: 

When I click on any of the OpenOffice.org links on the default menu in Rawhide,
OpenOffice.org fails to launch.

The following message is in the file ~/.openoffice-install-log:

Installation of OpenOffice.org 1.1.2 failed:
/usr/lib/ooo-1.1/program/setup -R:/tmp/ooo-wrapper.autoresponse.file.K13037 -v
-nogui > ~/.openoffice-install-log 2>&1'

Which seems to be caused by the fact that there *is* no 'setup' binary in
/usr/lib/ooo-1.1/program - it lives in /emul/ia32-linux/usr/lib/ooo-1.1/program

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log into GNOME.
2. Click on any OpenOffice.org icon on the panel.
3. Watch it not launch.
Actual Results:  

Expected Results:  
OpenOffice.org should have launched properly. Failing that, some notification
that it was not going to launch should have been provided.

Comment 1 Chris Lee 2004-10-23 00:30:17 UTC
Please note that this is IA64-specific. Updating severity (new bugzilla doesn't
like me setting the severity in the initial report)

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2004-10-23 01:24:52 UTC
i386 openoffice doesn't work on ia64; it breaks with the path
translation. Perhaps we should exclude it.

Comment 3 Dan Williams 2004-10-24 00:25:37 UTC
I assume this would be fixed by an install scripts fix, but OOo
_really_ expects to be installed in a specific place and doesn't like
not being there.

Bill:  it should be a simple fix to the launcher script to get it to
work, but how do I know where the ia32 root is?  Is there some magic
environment variable that I can check to figure out what to prepend to
the path to the setup program?

Comment 4 Chris Lee 2004-10-25 18:05:50 UTC
Adding blocker for the GNOME-broken-IA64-issues bug.

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2004-10-25 19:15:12 UTC
On ia64, the install prefix is /emul/ia32-linux. *However*,
if you run the installer script in a 32-bit shell, things should just
work. Of course, doing that is tricky.

Comment 6 Chris Lee 2004-10-25 19:22:33 UTC
Removing this from the blocker list, per notting's request

Comment 7 Lawrence Lim 2004-10-29 03:53:47 UTC
Bug 137395 has the same problem as well but it was filed under x86_64

Comment 8 Caolan McNamara 2005-04-04 14:29:20 UTC
Seeing as rh#137395# is fixed and close, does this work on ia64 as well since
that version ?

Comment 9 Caolan McNamara 2005-04-13 11:57:09 UTC
no response -> assuming its ok on ia64 as the very similiar x86_64 bug is long
time closed.
