This is a more obscure question -- but has anyone else seen this type of
problem with openoffice in linux:
seeger at athena:~$ openoffice
** (process:2092): WARNING **: Unknown error forking main binary /
abnormal early exit ...
I've spent alot of time trying to figure it out -- using strace -f to
see if there's a segfault somewhere. I've tried removing my installation
of it (apt-get remove --purge openoffice.org) and reinstalling.
I can't seem to figure out what it's unhappy about and not exactly sure
who's fault it is -- debians or openoffices.
It was working fine at one point and then it stopped -- either due to a
power loss or a system upgrade.
Anyways -- if anyone has any thoughts on this, I'd appreciate it. Even
if it's to say where I should look for more help. Haven't had much luck
and I'm really bummed as I need a spreadsheet app that can handle macros
-- and no other linux spread sheet that I know of seems to...
For reference: I'm using debian 2.6.18.
