O3 Build

O3 Build CD should enable new developers of OpenOffice.org to start with Development for OpenOffice.org without the need to take care of every prerequisites the OpenOffice.org build system needs.


It also comes with a glibc 2.24 installed which allows the created executables to run on almost every Linux system.

Objective: mount cd to /o3

modify and execute for Linux /o3/lx_ia32/setgulls (add the path to OOo source tree)

and enjoy !!


On Windows: please install the prerequites described in Developers starter.odt or use Building_OOo_with_Cygwin_on_Windows for a detailed description of the setup.

subst p: e: (e> your favorite DVD-drive)

modify and execute /o3/win32/setgulls.win32

new in 20061108

  • gcc-3.4.1 with binutils 2.14: --prefix=/o3/lx_ia32 --enable-languages=c,c++ --program-suffix=-3.4.1 --with-gnu-as --with-as=/o3/lx_ia32/bin/as-2.14 --with-gnu-ld --with-ld=/o3/lx_ia32/bin/ld-2.14
  • gcc-4.1.1 with binutils 2.17: --prefix=/o3/lx_ia32 --enable-languages=c,c++ --program-suffix=-4.1.1 --with-gnu-as --with-as=/o3/lx_ia32/bin/as-2.17 --with-gnu-ld --with-ld=/o3/lx_ia32/bin/ld-2.17

new problem when compiling with 3.4.1: /o3/lx_ia32/lib/libsupc++.a(eh_alloc.o)(.text.__i686.get_pc_thunk.bx+0x0): In function `__i686.get_pc_thunk.bx': /tmp/gcc-4.1.1/libstdc++-v3/libsupc++/eh_alloc.cc:164: multiple definition of `__i686.get_pc_thunk.bx' /o3/lx_ia32/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/3.4.1/crtbeginS.o(.gnu.linkonce.t.__i686.get_pc_thunk.bx+0x0): first defined here /o3/lx_ia32/lib/libsupc++.a(eh_exception.o)(.text.__i686.get_pc_thunk.cx+0x0): In function `__i686.get_pc_thunk.cx': /tmp/gcc-4.1.1/libstdc++-v3/libsupc++/eh_exception.cc:38: multiple definition of `__i686.get_pc_thunk.cx' ../unxlngi6.pro/slo/store_version.o(.gnu.linkonce.t.__i686.get_pc_thunk.cx+0x0): first defined here

new in 20070329

  • added Win32 version
  • added Developers starter.odt
  • updated to OpenOffice.org 2.2
  • added Readme.html

open problems

  • Xinerama check fails, libXinerama is static library, configure script is missing -lX11 library (hack/patch available)
  • /o3/lx_ia32/lib must not be in LD_LIBRARY_PATH (hack/patch available)
  • -L/o3/lx_ia32/lib must not be in LDFLAGS where checkdll is used (solved by the above item)
  • epm build fails if fltk-config is installed on system
  • gcc-3.4.1 produces link problems, please use the default 4.1.1 gcc instead.

tools still required from the builder

When you intend to setup a minimal chroot to build OOo with O3-build, you still need some of the tools from your system. For example:

  • patch
  • rpm(build) or deb to build packages
  • gperf
  • zip and unzip
  • file (not necessary to build, but pollute the log with "can't exec file" kind of messages)
  • cvs (the cvs that comes with o3-build frequently just hangs and has to be killed)

open todos

  • update documentation
  • ~/.cwsrc is missing for new user, need to provide a default one for these cases.
  • replicate Hamburg environment so it can be used by buildbots, Pavel etc.
  • Linux: add xmkmf
