This attached Calc file crashed in Fedora fresh repository but did not crash in LibreOffice installed with RPM package. Should this crash be reported in LibreOffice or Fedora ?

Changed the question from:

Calc+Base+BASIC+Fedora: LibreOffice fresh repository crashed but did not crash in RPM.

Comments really? Then you should claim a patent of time travel.

Anyway, this should be reported to the distro (or the repo) maintainer(s) first.

Modified according to Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1900428.

Dear @Ratslinger,

Can you please test on Ubuntu or other distributions based on Debian?


Edit : November 28, 2020

Dear @Ratslinger,

On November 27, 2020, I installed testing libreoffice-

sudo dnf upgrade --enablerepo=updates-testing --advisory=FEDORA-2020-bdff044556

And November 28, 2020, I installed stable libreoffice-

sudo dnf upgrade --advisory=FEDORA-2020-bdff044556

The result was error message that it should be, image description

for I gave 7, instead of 6, on line : 56.

Previously LibreOffice, by default repository, crashed, but LibreOffice installed from from TDF RPM Package had no error.

Have deleted previous comment. Must have done something totally wrong the first time. Re-downloaded both files. Only changed the directory location in the macro. All ran without error.

Ran this multiple times including on a newly inserted sheet. No crashes or errors.

Yes - tested with LO v7.0.3.1 (from TDF) on Ubuntu 20.04 Mate.

Hi just try an other distribution , if it's work that means some of the libraries that LO depends on are corrupted
