Installing LibreOffice 5.0.1 on Sabayon, using Portage

Post by fusion809 » Tue Sep 08, 2015 12:54


I'd love to install LibreOffice 5 (5.0.0/5.0.1 is fine, so long as it is in the 5 series) on my Sabayon system, but I know that Entropy does not yet have LibreOffice 5 in its repos, so I'm left using Portage. I ran:

Code: Select all

emerge =app-office/libreoffice-
After installing as many dependencies as possible with Entropy. This left me with 7 packages to emerge:

Code: Select all

[ebuild  N     ] app-office/libreoffice-l10n-  USE="-offlinehelp" LINGUAS="af ar bg bn br bs ca cs cy da de el en en_GB eo es et eu fa fi fr ga gl gu he hi hr hu is it ja kk km ko lt lv mk mn nb nl nn pl pt pt_BR ro ru rw sk sl sr ss sv ta tg tr uk uz vi zh_CN zh_TW -am -as -ast -be -bn_IN -bo -brx -ca_valencia -dgo -dz -en_ZA -gd -gug -id -ka -kmr_Latn -kn -kok -ks -lb -lo -mai -ml -mni -mr -my -ne -nr -nso -oc -om -or -pa_IN -sa_IN -sat -sd -si -sid -sq -sr_Latn -st -sw_TZ -te -th -tn -ts -tt -ug -ve -xh -zu" 528 KiB

emerging the first of these packages, l10n, gave this error message:

here's my build.log file. My internet connection is fine, hence why I don't understand this error. If for whatever reason this forum is not suitable for Portage questions, as I was informed by Joost on a earlier post that the Sabayon community doesn't really support using Portage for package installation, I would appreciate it if you's could direct me somewhere that would be appropriate place for me to ask such questions. Of course, I could ask these questions in the Gentoo forums, but I am not an experienced Linux user, so I suspect the conversation there would quickly go over my head.

Thanks for your time,

you tried to compile directly in your language?

example if you need only the package in the Great Britain English:

Code: Select all

# LINGUAS="en_GB" emerge -av app-office/libreoffice
also, in your error messaages, seems to me that the system not find the "ar" language pack... if you need to compile in all the "founded" languages, you may try in this manner:

Code: Select all

# emerge -av --keep-going app-office/libreoffice

Code: Select all

# LINGUAS="-ar" emerge -av app-office/libreoffice

It doesn't have ar on that mirror.


either the mirror is missing it, or the ebuild is wrong and shouldn't require it or the flags you have set won't work.
