OpenOffice.org building day

(Comments)

Had an OpenOffice.org building day yesterday. Up to four concurrent builds. My Fedora machine seems to overheat in such a circumstance and turn itself off poof! Then won't turn on again for a few minutes. Frustrating.
Anyhow the Windows build of ooo-build-2-0-1 now looks like its working. I tried to integrate the SIL Graphite OOo patch into ooo-build but had a problem building graphite 1.1.2 with gcc 4.
I did a complete build of 2.0.1 and m149 on Fedora, just respinning 2.0.1 to fix up the installs which have a problem with strip. Discovered you have to manually specify to use -system tarball if you want to build dictionaries, something we do because we've got our own South African dictionaries.
Finally have a Windows build of 2.0.1 after fixing numerous problems and restarting a number of times. So should be building out of ooo-build cvs now. Tor has been doing parallel builds to me there :-)
Also have been helping Friedel who's joined the South African project to try get his builds going. A frustrating process for him, showing that OpenOffice.org's build system is better than it was, but still has a long way to go.
