Is it possible to cross compile LibreOffice for my Arm based board, running Linux kernel.

Is there any guide available for this.

Try this two wikis

( and


But I think you need also a C++ compiler for ARM and compatible with MSC++ 2008.

First check if the linux distro you are using or it's community doesn't already have a build

The Debian community apparently already has a working ARM build of OpenOffice.

The debs for Rasbian are here

and its also on the Raspberry Pi app store, but I think that is just a fancy front end for the Raspian repository.

I can't find their sources, so that's not much use if you are not using Raspian on a Pi, but being Debian based they will have sources available.

This thread from the Arch forums might be helpful

As might this Slackware thread , although they don't appear to have built it successfully.

From what I recall a working OpenJDK install and Apache Ant is also still required to build 3.6 .I'm not sure if this still applies to Libreoffice 4.0 . OpenJDK can apparently be a bit of a bear to build on ARM if you don't already have a working build for your distro.

This page should be more useful than the windows build dependacies above

This info from the OpenOffice Wiki should still be relevant
