debugging open office
Posted on 2002-03-29
Trying to run the latest version of openoffice on my system (SuSE7.2), but it crashes when loading. So, I figure I need to run a stack trace, but I'm getting nowhere in trying. First, I tried to use gdb, but the 'soffice' executable is a shell script, and I can't see what it points to - there's a file called 'soffice.bin' but that doesn't help.
Someone told me that if it's crashing it should create a core file, but I can't figure out how to go about accessing this. Can someone point me in the right direction?
