I have StarOffice 5.01 running on FreeBSD but.. when I try and select
the task icon Staroffice crashes. Also I only seem able to start Staroffice
as root. Anyone seen this?
>> I am having a problem with Star Office 3.1 under my FreeBSD
>> 3.1-RELEASE install. The port compiles fine, but when I run it I get :
>> User Install required before swriter3 can be run, please wait...
>> ELF binary type not known. Use "brandelf" to brand it.
>> Abore trap
>> When I run "brandelf swriter3" I get the following error:
>> brandelf: file 'swriter3' is not ELF format
>> I have tried brandelf w/ the -f and -t FreeBSD options and both get the

>> Any help would be appreciated.
>> Also, I have compiled XFree86 w/ aout support and am using 18.104.22.168.
