Subject Re: Strange error while building OO for windows
Date Tue, 02 May 2017 22:47:26 GMT
I tried to build OpenOffice from svn's AOO413 tag today, this time

Still i have to say that the wiki page with step-by-step guide has some
errors that i had to deal with(or it's outdated a bit).

Things that I encountered so far:
1. Suggested ./configure option list in the wiki is missing a compulsory
"--disable-directx" option(in case you are not building with DirectX of
course). This is a minor complaint, as the ./configure script will inform
you about missing options.
2. AOO413 build process will terminate with an error when running javadoc
on some Java sources - most likely due to this breaking change in JDK8: As
result, building AOO413 with jdk8 seems impossible if there isn't an easy
way to forward -Xdoclint:none option to javadoc. JDK 7 works.
3. It could be helpful to write somewhere in build instructions that dmake
doesn't try to rebuild failed modules automatically if they aren't
recognised as "changed". I only noticed this while reading, and AFAIK every
other build system behaves differently(nmake, cmake/qmake, make ...)

Building with symbols/debug mode enabled right now, should finish by
tomorrow morning. Then i'll do something with it.
