Why is OpenOffice masked for the Sparc architecture? 2.0.4 wasn't masked the last time I compiled it. Any ideas why? I'd really love to have OpenOffice on my Ultra-2 enterprise box!

alexbuell,

OpenOffice 2.2.1 is keyworded
Code:
KEYWORDS="~amd64 ppc -sparc x86"
the -sparc means known broken on sparc.
You can get all the old ebuilds ever from hereso you may maintain 2.0.4 in your overlay if you wish

I've just tried to build OpenOffice 2.2.1, it was nearly complete until it bombed out with an error. Oh dear. :-( Guess I'd better head on over to bugzilla...

Basically the reason it was masked was it failed to build after the 2.0.x series and none of the active developers had the bandwidth to look into it at that time.

However, users looking into issues like this and others are always welcome as the architecture teams for the less common systems always seem to be welcome :)
