retitle 380414 illegal instruction on i586 tag 380414 + wontfix thanks Hi, Micha wrote: > $ oowriter > /usr/lib/openoffice/program/soffice: line 252: 13678 Illegal instruction "$sd_prog/$sd_binary" "$@" Hmm. > $ uname -a > Linux woody 18.104.22.168-1 #1 Sun Nov 27 06:52:07 CET 2005 i586 GNU/Linux ^^^^ Oh, old kernel... But the problem here might be the i586.... OOo is built with -mtune=pentiumpro since long ago (1.0.1-6...) - otherwise it would be even more slow, see the changelog - which is a i686... Might be it just happened to use a i686-specific instruction right now (changed gcc etc.) Regards, Rene  * Revert back to compiling i386 with -mcpu=pentiumpro, since it will make OOo run faster on the majority of machines (P5 generation is too slow for OOo, but it will still work fine if someone really wants to run it).
