Subject Re: Problem building AOO
Date Thu, 04 Sep 2014 21:44:28 GMT

Thanks a lot guys, I think disk space was responsible for issues. I was running on 1.3g on
my build partition, I freed up 40g. The problem persisted, so I deleted the solver/420/
directory and ran build --from toolkit again. And my build resumed smoothly. 

The build isn't completed cos my laptop battery went flat. But I'm very grateful for the help
so far. 

Thanks a lot.

yes, first thing, it is better to stick with the default compilers gcc,g++4.6 your Ubuntu
12.04 offers; if you're updating, you have to update both gcc and g++.
I had a different problem but related to the toolkit module. Since my system complained about
it,  I increased the partition size, where the source is, to 40GB; and built with the default
compiler g++, gcc 4.8.2 in Ubuntu 14.04, the first module that was built was toolkit. Increasing
the disk space could solve this problem. 
Moreover, many have got successful builds in Ubuntu 12.04, so it may not be an issue.

I recommend sticking with the default compiler you have. OpenOffice 
compiles cleanly on Ubuntu 12.04, even our Linux buildbots at run on 
Ubuntu 12.04. gcc 4.8 should be fine anyway, and build should also work 
on the newer Ubuntu 14.04 (with gcc 4.8) since Amali fixed it.

Let's see if it is a permanent error or just an issue related to 
abruptly stopping the build, or out of disk space (I've seen similar 
errors from time to time).

For a very quick and brutal test, try removing (or renaming) this 
directory: solver/420/
and then go again through the configure, bootstrap, source, "build 
--all" steps.

If you still see the problem, please post the exact syntax of your 
./configure command: I and others have Ubuntu 12.04 virtual machines and 
can see if problem is reproducible.
