Try the latest stable, no CVS or any development stuff.

I already have the latest stable.
Just tried re-installing again - same problem
Tried a search on Google Groups, couldn't find anyone reporting the same.
I am using Mandrake 8.2, 800Mhz Athlon, 512M Ram.
Q. Is anyone using OO succesfully on Mandrake 8.2 and similar setup?
(just trying to eliminate the obvious before 'digging in' too deep)

FWIW, I'm using it with Suse 7.3 on a 330 mHz box, and it takes about 20 seconds to start up.

Something isn't right. If you start it from a terminal window does it give you any clues or just sit there while its loading ?
How long does it take to load Mozilla 1.0 ?

What is the load on the system? Is some application doing heavy use of the memory, pipes or process switching?
I found that when my download speed is constant and a little over the limit any app takes some extra time loading, specially Mozilla. I'd should fix my tcp settings, I know. That is, of course, a kernel issue. So, what processes are running at the same time?

Mozilla loads in a few seconds and there is no big load on my system - everything else is running fast enough.
I will need to dig in a little deeper - might be linked with my java installation, which was problematic (I believe it uses java for some bits - could be wrong though)
If I get it solved, I'll post back.

During installation it asks for path to java, yes. I installed without Java, and everything worked well. Don't even know what Java would be needed for.
I have another problem now with OO, but that's another story.

just for reference to open a text document with the windows version is 8 seconds for me.

OK I give up
Back to Gnumeric and Abiword - which work well enough I 'spose

One of the great things about OO is compatibility with MS products. Open and save from/to MS formats is great for business stuff. Abiword and Gnumeric do that too?
Did you try installing anew without Java support?
| 2:08 pm on Aug 26, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Gnumeric and ABIword both have MSOffice compatibility, although OO looks like it is a little better in this respect.
For what I am doing the differences are minimal.
I might have another play around when I have more time - but these w will keep me covered for the time being.

>OO is compatibility with MS products.
I can open more word .doc formats with Open Office than I can with Word.
