LibreOffice File not recognized: File truncated

Problem :

I have the following problem when I build libreoffice. I've tried to delete it and emerge it an other time
but without success :

[ build CXX ] stoc/source/corereflection/crarray.cxx
[ build CXX ] stoc/source/corereflection/crbase.cxx
[ build CXX ] stoc/source/corereflection/crcomp.cxx
[ build CXX ] stoc/source/corereflection/crefl.cxx
[ build CXX ] stoc/source/corereflection/crenum.cxx
[ build CXX ] stoc/source/corereflection/criface.cxx
[ build LNK ] Library/
/var/tmp/portage/app-office/libreoffice- file not recognized: File truncated
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [/var/tmp/portage/app-office/libreoffice-] Error 1

        Oh dear - something failed during the build - sorry !
  For more help with debugging build errors, please see the section in:

  internal build errors:

ERROR: error 512 occurred while making /var/tmp/portage/app-office/libreoffice-

 it seems that the error is inside 'stoc', please re-run build
 inside this module to isolate the error and/or test your fix:

build_error.log should contain the captured output of the failed module(s)

To rebuild a specific module:

make stoc.clean # optional
make stoc

when the problem is isolated and fixed, re-run 'make'
make[1]: *** [build-packimages] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/var/tmp/portage/app-office/libreoffice-'
make: *** [build] Error 2
 * ERROR: app-office/libreoffice- failed (compile phase):
 *   (no error message)
 * Call stack:
 *, line  93:  Called src_compile
 *   environment, line 8981:  Called die
 * The specific snippet of code:
 *       make build || die
 * If you need support, post the output of `emerge --info '=app-office/libreoffice-'`,
 * the complete build log and the output of `emerge -pqv '=app-office/libreoffice-'`.
!!! When you file a bug report, please include the following information:
GENTOO_VM=  CLASSPATH="" JAVA_HOME="/etc/java-config-2/current-system-vm"
and of course, the output of emerge --info
 * The complete build log is located at '/var/tmp/portage/app-office/libreoffice-'.
 * The ebuild environment file is located at '/var/tmp/portage/app-office/libreoffice-'.
 * Working directory: '/var/tmp/portage/app-office/libreoffice-'
 * S: '/var/tmp/portage/app-office/libreoffice-'

Solution :

You just have to delete data in your cache directory.For example, if you have a CCache, it's probably set in make.conf with CCACHE_DIR="/var/tmp/ccache".
A good explanation about reason could be found on this blog

KDE informations

If you search a kde package list or other information about kde, you should see Gentoo Wiki.
For my needs, I search KDE admin package.So i found :
kde-base/kdeadmin-meta: Administrative utilities, which helps you manage your system.

For additionnal information, you should see :

Change to GDM

I decided to switch to GDM.In fact, I wanted to chnage easily between KDE, fluxbox and perhaps other.
That's why I decided o change.

Tuesday, November 6, 2012


Here is my new make.conf.I use Kde and Fluxbox (split and toolbar in USE).
You alse have to install ccache and my processor is Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad  CPU   Q9550  @ 2.83GHz.That's why I put march=native?

# These settings were set by the catalyst build script that automatically
# built this stage.
# Please consult /usr/share/portage/config/make.conf.example for a more
# detailed example.
CFLAGS="-O2 -march=native -pipe"

# Please consult before changing.

Play 1.2.5 Python 3 on Gentoo problem


Now, I have error with play command (writes in python)
Here is the error :

  File "/opt/drieu/play/play", line 50
    print r"~        _            _ "
SyntaxError: invalid syntax


In fact, on my gentoo, I have Python 3.Or this command needs python 2
So you just have to change python version.
However, it's not really easy because of a bug with : eselect python set 1
It's not a bug.You just have to execute this command in root.
I will made a post on gentoo forum and I will add comment to this article after

During install, I've met the following problem :

rc-update: service `xdm' does not exist

I try emerge xdm but it doesn't work.

emerge kdebase-meta (very long)

emerge kde-base/kdeadmin-meta (Admin package no mandatory.)
emerge kde-base/kcalc
emerge dhcpcd
emerge grub
emerge kdm

⇒ rc-update: service `xdm' does not exist

To resolve that problem, you have to install xorg-server : emerge xorg-server
Then you can do : rc-update add xdm default

Kde in french :

emerge kde-base/kde-l10n
vi /usr/share/config/kdm/Xsetup
setxkbmap fr

Sound configuration

emerge media-sound/pulseaudio
emerge alsa-plugins
gpasswd -a drieu audio
emerge eix pavucontrol

Add alsa in the USE of make.conf
emerge --ask --changed-use --deep world

Developpement package

emerge virtual/jdk
emerge git

There is not yet maven 3 in ebuild.So you have to install it manually

Clone with VirtualBox

I want to test severeal configuration like kde with gentoo or other test configuration.That's why, I create a common gentoo virtual machine and I clone it.
You can clone your virtual machine like that :

VBoxManage clonevdi ${HOME}/.VirtualBox/HardDisks/Gentoo_common.vdi ${HOME}/.VirtualBox/HardDisks/Gentoo_kde.vdi

Then, Clic add and after when you add you hard drive, choose your vdi file.

EXT3-fs couldn't mount because unsupported option No file system could mount root

I decide to update my Gentoo Virtual machine on my VirtualBox.
I configured my /etc/fstab like that :

/dev/sda1   /boot        ext4    defaults,noatime     1 2
/dev/sda2   none         swap    sw                   0 0
/dev/sda3   /            ext4    noatime              0 1
/dev/cdrom  /mnt/cdrom   auto    noauto,user          0 0

proc        /proc        proc    defaults             0 0
shm         /dev/shm     tmpfs   nodev,nosuid,noexec  0 0

I also apply the EXT4 filesystem with mkfs.ext4

When I ran my Virtual machine, I have a kernel panic with the following message : EXT3-fs couldn't mount because unsupported option No file system could mount root
In fact, I forgot to add EXT4 support to my kernel. See this link to add EXT4 support on your kernel : EXT4_kernel
