Re: ooo-build is coming...

Where is the download I still have 9Gig of diskspace and CPU cycles to spare :-))) I'm willing to give it a go.

Hey gang,

Just to keep you entirely shitscared, the next release of GARNOME will
include Michael Meeks' ooo-build tarball, which assists in the process of
building with GNOME-integration patches (which you've
probably seen in Ximian screenshots and the like).

Be afraid:

 $ du -sh download/*
 140M    download/OOO_1_1_0.tar.bz2
 9.6M    download/binutils-
 20M     download/gcc-3.2.2.tar.bz2
 39M     download/j2sdk-1.4.1-01-linux-i586-gcc3.2.tar.bz2
 696k    download/ooo-build-1.1.42.tar.gz
 1.1M    download/ooo-icons-OOO_1_1-1.tar.gz

Not for the light hearted, OOo itself requires about 4GB free space to
build, and almost a weekend, depending on the speed of your machine. Yes, it
actually requires its own binutils and gcc! 8)

I'm not going to build it myself, but I'm hoping there is someone BATSHIT
INSANE enough on this list to give it a go and help Michael out a bit. :-)

If my first thought is "sounds fun!", should I be seeking rehab?

Sounds like a _great_ burn-in test to me. I fear it may push garnome
onto it's own partition soon tho <que beavis'n'butthead laughter>
