Description Matthias Clasen 2005-04-01 14:22:03 EST
Even after fixing the missing java runtime problem, openoffice does not start.
It says "no suitable windowing system found, exiting."

This is with 1.9.88-4
Comment 1 Caolan McNamara 2005-04-02 06:03:41 EST
ok, so...

rpm -qRp openoffice.org-core-1.9.88-4.i386.rpm  | grep startup-notification

a) do you have the i386 startup-notification installed ? 
b) if not, does adding the i386 one sort things out ? 
c) If that's whats happening, then the i386 one is not getting pulled in by the
Requires, so is that a flaw on myside somehow, or somewhere else ?

Comment 3 Caolan McNamara 2005-04-05 08:30:23 EDT
i386 openoffice.org Requires: startup-notification and libgcj but under x86_64
the i386 packages dependancies on these two packages *seems* to get fufilled by
the 64bit equivalents, and rpm doesn't demand the i386 packages to be installed
before allowing OOo to be installed. Which I assume it should do ?

Manually added the two i386 packages reportedly makes the problem go away.
Comment 4 Paul Nasrat 2005-04-05 08:52:59 EDT
Requires: name will be met by the provides from the x86_64 package - you're
getting what you asked for as by package name does not imply anything about
arch.  You could be asking for helper programs/script requirements rather than
libs where the arch of the required package doesn't matter.  

For startup-notification it seems that eg libvclplug_gen680li.so is not +x so
rpm auto requires isn't adding a coloured lib requirement for
libstartup-notification-1.so.0 vs libstartup-notification-1.so.0()(64bit) you
could Requires: libstartup-notification-1.so.0 which will get 32 bit
startup-notification everywhere.  Likewise adding Requires: libgcj.so.6 and
keeping the Requires: libgcj >= 4.0.0 should work for 32bit libgcj.

Is there any reason those files aren't executable so rpm library
provides/requires work?  chmod in %install and use %attr to reset another option.
Comment 5 Caolan McNamara 2005-04-05 09:09:04 EDT
fair enough will do. Though no-one else seems to know that this is how the
multilib stuff works probably similiar problems spread throughout our rpms. All
the .sos are dlopened by OOo, they've never apparently been +x upstream.
Comment 6 Dan Williams 2005-04-05 09:33:33 EDT
Note that for 1.1.x I had to do the following at the end of the %install section
a very long time ago:

# Make shared libraries executable so we can pull debuginfo from them
chmod +wx %{buildroot}%{_libdir}/%{ooo_install_dir}/program/*so*
chmod +wx %{buildroot}%{_libdir}/%{ooo_install_dir}/program/filter/*so*
chmod +w  %{buildroot}%{_libdir}/%{ooo_install_dir}/program/*.bin
chmod +w  %{buildroot}%{_libdir}/%{ooo_install_dir}/program/regcomp \
%{buildroot}%{_libdir}/%{ooo_install_dir}/program/pagein		\
		%{buildroot}%{_libdir}/%{ooo_install_dir}/program/ooovirg		\
Comment 7 Dan Williams 2005-04-05 09:35:15 EDT
It seems that +x is needed for more things than debuginfo I guess.
Comment 8 Caolan McNamara 2005-04-05 13:13:51 EDT
will do for 1.9.89-4
Comment 9 Caolan McNamara 2005-04-06 11:42:48 EDT
> rpm -qRp openoffice.org-core-1.9.89-4.i386.rpm | grep startup
> rpm -qRp openoffice.org-core-1.9.89-4.i386.rpm | grep libgcj

That should do it if I understand things correctly now.
