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.
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...?

We need a native compile because this uses java compiler (javac) all time to build OOo libs and binaries.

hmmm.

I have 2 Z's. A currently unconfigured 6000 and my 3100.

Maybe we could figure out how to setup the 6000, use nfs or smaba for swap and just let 'er rip for a week or two?  I realize this would give pxa255 rather than 270 as the base architecture, but that would allow support for more devices, too.  And this way i could whip up a gig plus swapfile for it (over 100mbit ethernet) or i could attach a usb drive and make a gig plus swpfile there (I have a 49 gig usb drive- fat format- that i could make the file on ) the speeds would be about the same, though, wouldn't they?

 I suppose i could set an odd port for ssh and let someone with more expertise get on the Z, if necessary.

what re the problems here? do we have to be using a 2.6 rom?  How can we do that on the 6k?

On my 3100 i have a nice pdaXrom beta3 setup.  I fear the beta 4s still
I'd like to compile something that will run on kernel 2.4 and 2.6 and on 255 and 270 chips.

ideas?

edit:
on reading last post,  I can give it a few gigs of swap, if necessary, and mount a share of hundreds of gigs-- or use networked swap and attach the usb drive (make a 10 gig ext3 partition on it) and connect that as well--etc..


edit: edit:

what about doing a chroot to the usb drive, or the network? would that be better?  what is the most efficient way to access the available space?  (all connections being via usb/ usb ethernet)

Hi there...

You did a very good job, and I would to try it...

Can somebody upload glibc_2.3.2_armv5tel.ipk, cause hxxp://zaurus.earpassion.net/glibc_2.3.2_armv5tel.ipk is not working?

Tnx...

Tnx m8 for your fast responce...

The problem is that when I run ./setup the terminal window freeze after a while and when I run ./soffice  I get a window that shuts down after 1 min. If I logoff Xfce4 session, then I cannot load Xfce4 and Ihave to flash again my Z. I am running on a Z3200 beta3, Xfce 4.2.2 and rox filer. Why is this?

this an article about the original porting of open office to the arm processor

http://www.openoffice.org/editorial/peter_naulls.html

it said it took 3 days on a 600 mhz arm board to compile it.
