I don't know if this has been resolved yet, but I was having a similar (read: exactly the same) problem. Are you using nfs-mounted home directories by any chance? In my case we're using a diskless gentoo system where the home directories are all nfs mounts to the server. The problem had to do with nfs file locking. It can be solved by editing /usr/lib/openoffice/program/soffice and commenting out these two lines: SAL_ENABLE_FILE_LOCKING=1 export SAL_ENABLE_FILE_LOCKING Note that setting it =0 was not enough for me, I had to comment them out. Everything worked fine after that. Scott. -- gentoo-amd64@g.o mailing list
