Re: openoffice for NetBSD/amd64 5.0_BETA ?

Can someone please build this for me using no extra openoffice options and 
using X11_TYPE=modular?

Or does NetBSD project have a NetBSD/amd64 5.0_BETA  build machine I can 
have access to?

Off-list I was offered one built against newer NetBSD HEAD, one using 
kdelibs, and other using NetBSD's /usr/X11R7/. If I can't get a modular 
version then I will install /usr/X11R7 -- but that means I should probably 
reinstall the rest of my X-related software but may have problems descibed 



ps. Why can't I build it?

My NetBSD/amd64 5.0_BETA is a laptop. It powers off automatically when the 
temperature gets over 191 F. I have a script that attempts to suspend the 
build when getting to warm, but that kicks off every 30 seconds -- it 
overheats that fast. So my build is very slow and because I haven't yet 
figured out how to suspend correctly some of the build (of openoffice 
itself) is done out of order and fails every time in different places. 
Also since my temperature monitoring is only changed every 30 seconds 
(limitation of hardware I think) I can't always detect high temperature -- 
so powers off. The system has powered off maybe 20 times in past few days 
trying to build openoffice -- I have to restart the build each time. I 
think the build will take over 1/2 day even if no problems. I have tried 
keeping the laptop propped up to keep good air flow, kept vents clean, 
etc. The normal running temperature is 159 F. But jumps to 190+ easily 
when building openoffice. I have other laptops and desktop systems that 
overheat when I build code too so I have to use my handle-temperature 
script on them also. (I am really curious why I don't recall anyone else 
having similar temperature problems since it has happened to me for five 
years or so on many different NetBSD versions on many different hardware 
at different locations.)
