Openoffice On Pdaxrom
« Reply #120 on: March 26, 2006, 06:29:08 am »
Ok, here's the test.xls file if anyone else wants to have a play.

It's an expenses file, I've taken out the vital info, so you can't laugh at what I spend my money on.  

It was created on my Mac PowerBook using OpenOffice 1.1.4

It opens on my XP PC desktop in OpenOffice 1.1.4 fine.

On the Zaurus you get the errors I showed off in previous posts.

On a side note, I'm curious if Meanie has noticed these problems too? When I had his OOo running in X/QT on the old sharp ROM - I don't remember any probs with it.

I'm sorry, I might just be being dense. I still don't quite know what you mean. Give an example of what you except as an input method, so my brain can catch up. Or please elaborate on your question more fully.

Do you mean how did I input the information into the spreadsheet which now displays errors?

I don't think the mini debian that the OOo image is based on has any IMs at all.

For entering characters not based on the latin alphabet an IM (input method) is usually needed. And CJK is short for Chinese, Japanese and Korean.

So no, badog was not referring to your spreadsheet errors problem

I have looked at your spreadsheet and yes they're totally out of whack. Also I have recently opened one of my own gnumeric produced XLS sheet in OOo and saw a similar problem. So I guess you can't trust OOo calc for production work

Hi All

Just wondering if anyone had come up with any thoughts as to why there were errors with this?

Also wondering if anyone had worked out a way to compile OOo 2.02 for the Z. This loads much faster on my old PC than 1.1.4 did, maybe it'll be quicker on the Z too. Just a thought.

I don't think so. But for the definitive answer you would have to ask Meanie who put together the OOo package. Or you could look through the mounted OOo filesystem to see whether any IM is included.

I'm just curious how this all works...

To compile OOo for the Z would this be done on the Z from the source code? I'm assuming that would take a long time and not necessarily succeed, even if someone had the skill I lack.

Fortunately not, because there is a "cross compiler" available, which is able to compile for one platform (ARM) on another (x86).  That's the theory anyway!

On my 2GHz, 512MB desktop machine it takes nearly 2 days to compile OOo. On the Z because of its limited memory it will be using swap like mad and probably take a month or 3 to compile. And you need about 2 or 3GB of free disk space.

Also the OOo that we have now is the result of Debian's support for the ARM architecture. But some time ago Debian has dropped offical support for ARM, so the chances of OOo 2 for ARM are pretty slim -- unless Meanie performs another miracle

Showing my ignorance again, do we really need the Debian support for the ARM architecture?

Surely if apps like AbiWord, etc can be compiled to work on the ARM as well as a x86, it's just the case of someone with a powerful computer going through the same process with OpenOffice?

I think we need a ARM cluster to compile Ooo 2 and other thinks like blackdown-1.4 ....

What about crosscompiler? or some kind of emulation? surely this can be done some other way....

If not--maybe someone can whip up a clustering module and we can all put our zs online for a few days and do it distributed...?
