Donnerstag, 3. Juli 2008 - Translation of wiki page

Today I translated a big part of the welcome page inside the wiki for the new education project of into german. This new project will help schools, universities etc. to get in contact with the OOo development process. It will also help developers to make the first steps inside OOo and find out how they could use the project tools and get their code inside the source tree.
If you want to contribute to OOo, join the Education project. There are regular IRC meetings in on Freenode.

Freitag, 9. Februar 2007 and Java on 64-bit SuSE 10.2

Yesterday I have got an error, when I tried to connect OOo 2.1(32-bit) on my SuSE 10.2-64-bit-box with a Java Runtime Environment(JRE). There was a Java-Sun-1.4.2-RPM installed on that machine. OOo wasn't able to verify this JRE neither automatically nor manual. I get the same result after update to Sun-Java-1.5.0.
Because I get the hint it could be a 64-bit-trouble I downloaded and installed manual with rpm -ivh the 32-bit-version. Afterwards OOo identified a JRE (the 32-bit). Now the assistants worked fine (after the obligatory restart of OOo).
