Universal Go-oo 3.1 build available

June 3rd, 2009 by

I am happy to announce that the universal Go-oo 3.1 build is available for Windows, Linux (i586, x86_64), and MAC OSX Intel. See also download and installation instructions. The builds include many upstream and Go-oo fixes.

Go-oo team hopes that you will be happy with this release. Though, any software contains bugs and we kindly ask you to report them, so that we could fixed them in the future releases. Also you could send feedback to the dev@lists.go-oo.org mailing list or contact us on irc.freenode.net, channel #go-oo.

The following OOo-3.1.1 release should be available on the beginning of September.

PS: I feel a bit schizophrenic. I want to blog about the openSUSE builds at planetsuse and about the universal build at planet.go-oo. Both builds are based on the same sources, so the schedule is almost the same. We only do more alpha and beta builds for openSUSE because it is so easy with the Build Service.

I wonder if the two separate announces are confusing. Should I separate the blogs even more? Any ideas?

Hmm, the best solution would be to do the universal build in the Build Service as well. Then all builds would be done at exactly the same time, they would be in the “same” repository, … It is my long term task but it will need some loving. The universal build must be done on a quite old hacky distro to work everywhere. The Windows build would require cross-compilation, …

Both comments and pings are currently closed.

    I was confusing when Open Office 3.1 was released a months ago and Go-oo 3.1 was released later. I didn´t know what to download. I thought that Go-oo was released at the same time.
    Both products should be released at exactly the same time.

      We do our best to release Go-oo at the same time as the upstream OOo is released. Unfortunately, it is not that easy because Go-oo has many extra changes and they need to be stabilized as well. The Go-oo release is usually delayed by few days or even weeks. The OOo-3.1 release was quite complicated. The upstream release was delayed by more than one month. The Go-oo release was delayed even more because we decided to have there OpenXML export in a useful state. Also the extended row limit in Calc caused some regressions that were discovered too late. We will do our best to avoid such a big delay in the future.

    Is the #101690 fixed in Go-oo 3.1?
    Or how may I figure out? (without downloading and trying)

    I just tried Go-oo Calc and is much better than Calc in upstream OpenOffice.org version. Especially I want to thank you for data filter in Calc.

    I installed go-oo 3.1 en-US on my PC width Mandriva 2007.
    When I start from xterm: /opt/openoffice.org3/program/scalc, I see splash-screen, and that is all.
    No mistake from xterm.

    Go-oo 3.0 has not problem. Openoffice 3.1 from Sun has not problem.
    Go-oo 3.1 – only splash-screen.

      Hmm, it is hard to say what is wrong on you system. It is possible that the installation is inconsistent (mixed upstream and Go-oo binaries). I would try to reinstall it. Please, remove all the OOo-related packages before. You might use the following commands:

      1. remove all ooo related packages by the command: rpm -e `rpm -qa | grep -e ooobasis -e openoffice`
      2. rm -rf /opt/openoffice.org3

      If it does not help. Could you please report the bug at https://bugzilla.novell.com against the product “OpenOffice.org”? It would be great if you could attach strace, see http://en.opensuse.org/Bugs:OOo#How_to_get_strace_log.

      The bug will be solved by the developer who is responsible for the Go-oo linux build (I have only uploaded and announced it). Anyway, he would need the strace log.

      BTW: Do you use KDE or GNOME? I wonder if it helps to uninstall ooobasis3.1-gnome-integration and ooobasis3.1-kde-integration.

    • Petr Mladek

      If it still does not work, could you please provide the list of the installed ooo packages? You could get it by the command:

      rpm -qa | grep -e ooobasis -e openoffice

        I tested all, but nothing help me.
        But – after I tray it as root and – voala! Calc opened, and very quickly!
        I thing, start go-oo as root is not good idea…
        I report bug to bugzilla.
