Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 154553
openoffice freezes the system
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:03 EST
I updated to the x86_64 box to rawhide today, and that pulled in
ooo 1.9.89-3, but it still did not pull in the i386 packages of libgcj
and startup-notification. After installing them manually, oowriter
starts up, but freezes the system. Not just X, the whole system, if I am
fast enough, I can switch to a different vt after starting oowriter,
and watch the system freeze a few seconds after that.
A) ooo 1.9.89-3, but it still did not pull in the i386 packages of libgcj
* Tue Apr 5 2005 Caolan McNamara <firstname.lastname@example.org> - 1:1.9.89-4
- rh#153129# Requires won't work for x86_64
so can you confirm or deny that they get pulled in for >= 1.9.89-4 ?
B) does it make any difference if it's e.g. oomath or oodraw vs oowriter. My
wild guess would be something to do with libgl or the like. Any debug in the
console, perhaps sshing in from a different machine and running it might throw
up something useful to see if it's anything to do with X/gl
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=139712 has a demo gl
program to test if its one of the weird things I've seen before
A) 1.9.92-2 seems to pull in the right packages
Actually, I spoke too soon. yum initially told me that it needed
startup-notifcation.i386, but it doesn't seem to have installed it !
oomath does not
ooimpress does too
I got a few of the other 64bit users to give ooo2 a whirl and couldn't get any
other similiar reports. Is this any other info which could shed a bit of light
on this one
FWIW: I don't have an idea about what this is, but I bet it's not much to do
with OOo, perhaps a kernel thing or perhaps an X thing.
Does it freeze if you are running it as root, and works as non-root?
caolanm is this still an issue? Does it lockup as root but not as a non-root user?
dunno, I've no x86_64 box to test to see if it hangs.
I'm guessing this was one of those 32-bit-64bit kernel problems we had earlier.
I can't reproduce anything like this. Assuming fixed.
