Installing LibreOffice

So I did, or thought I did, via HaikuDepot: but can find no trace of it anywhere in any of the nested dropdown menus.

Nor does LibreOffice open from HaikuDepot after installation . . .

Probably a reboot will be required.

As, at present, at least, that involves farting around with a finger on the SHIFT button
for an unconscionably long time, and then the thing refusing to boot from “Latest State” . . .

I am getting badly fried with the whole thing.

Aha: after a restart I saw LibreOffice and attempted to lauch it and got this:

The application

/boot/system/apps/LibreOffice/program/LibreOffice0

has encountered an error which prevents it from continuing.
Haiku will terminate the application and clean up.

Followed by four “sexy” buttons.

I’m choosing “Save report”

And here’s the substance of the report:

Active threads:
thread 610: team 609 debug task
thread 609: LibreOffice (main)
state: Call (abort()called)

Which is about as clear as mud.

iMac 2006 64-bit.

This is not the right place to report bugs in 3rdparty software. Open an issue at Haikuports github page.

Thanks for the pointer: will do.

What error do you get?

Do you by any chance use Haiku on an NVMe drive?

Just a 2006 imac: dunno what an NVMe drive is forbye.

As a Mac enthusiast, I can say that a 2006 iMac is more than likely using a hard disk drive in its standard configuration (or a SSD (solid state drive) if you or the original buyer opted to have one).

As for what NVMe is, it stands for Non-Volatile Memory Express, and per its name, is generally referring to a local storage type. Support for it was recently added to Haiku, which is why @Diver was asking; here’s the NVMe page on Wikipedia.

As for the LO question, there’s a lot missing here. Yes, it quit and there’s the snippet you provided earlier…

thread 610: team 609 debug task
thread 609: LibreOffice (main)
state: Call (abort()called)

… which is great, but what led up to this event? Also, what architecture are you using (x86 or x64)? 2006 was a year for both Core Duo (32-bit Intel) and Core 2 Duo (64-bit Intel) Macs.

How one would install an SSD in a 2006 imac and get it to work escapes me; mainly because,
I suspect the hard disk inside a 2006 iMac is probably PATA.

Actually, all 2006 iMacs used SATA (According to the Apple Service manuals)
