Can't emerge Open Office
I need Open Office for a project in my history class, when I try to emerge it with Kuroo, it starts downloading the other prerequisite packages and then stops when it gets to "app-shells/tcsh" it just stops, it says it's working but doesn't do anything. Any help is appreciated.
You can try
If you still want to compile it from source, then check out this thread:
I would try emerging from the command line that way you can see the exact error that is posted when the build fails. I've never used kuroo but I'm assuming that like most GUI's it hides important messages from you unless you checkout a log.
if you still can't figure it out from the error message post the error message here and check out bugzilla for any new bugs on the program. Might also help to post emerge --info if you have any crazy CFLAGS set up.
also, if it keeps happening at tcsh then run a simple
then emerge openoffice...
I got it to work with antidrugue's suggestion. Thanks :).
Long ago I faced this problem. When I executed this the code stalled my comp during compilation. Then somebody suggested me that I should emerge openoffice-bin. And that worked out. I suggest this problem should be archived, its too common.
