How long should it take to emerge OpenOffice?

I have installed 3.4 mini which doesn't include OpenOffice. I am emerging it via Portato and it has been at it for about three hours! Is this normal? :?:

use the bin

openoffice can take 6+ hours and majority of the time it will fail anyway.

It seems to have emerged OK but I will follow your advice next time. I don't know how long it actually took as I went to bed, but it was at least four hours!

It usually takes about 40 days and 40 nights! :mrgreen: Go with the bin file!

In which case, am I correct in thinking I should:

Code: Select all

emerge openoffice-bin

I emerged openoffice-bin on my other PC last night. I don't know exactly how low it took but it was less than twenty minutes. Lesson learned! :wink:
