OpenOffice shared installation over NFS problems
We here at university have 9 classes of Debian - 6-8 computers in each.
They all use one shared installation (mixed sid/testing/stable) over
NFS. Students authenticate using LDAP/Kerneros and their home
directories are mounted over OpenAFS. OpenOffice is planned to be used
for some subjects, but I ran into problems deploying it. New year begins
at 1st September, so I must be quick.
When OpenOffice 1.0.3-2 is started locally (NFS server), everything goes
smoothly. But when students try to run ooo from their computers in
classes, installation doesnt succeed: error window pops up stating that
types.rdb and services.rdb are missing or corrupted, and setup is
aborted. When trying OO.o 1.0.99+1.1rc-1, local installation doesnt even
get this far:
running openoffice.org setup...
setup failed.. abort
I've read instaructions at debian readme, but they dont seem to apply -
fonts are loaded sucessfully, and the same with LANG=C (we use
LANG=lt_LT.ISO8859-13). Played around with it and found that setup exits
with code 30.
What could be wrong? I can tell more details but i'm not sure which ones.
