    Question OpenOffice Open/Save extrmely slow

    Often when i open a document in writer (local or on NFS shares), OpenOffice hangs for like 10 to 30 seconds, and then resumes without problem.

    I'm on Lucid using the standard OpenOffice 3.2 installation, no add ons or so.

    Has anyone experienced this as well? Any help is most welcome!

    Thanks,
    Mike

    same here, may just be "normal" perhaps.

    Have u made any change to the settings of OpenOffice? I am also using Lucid. There has no problem at all. Its working fine. I am working regulrly on OpenOffice for about a month when Lucid has been released. Whats ur computer configuration. Is it enough fast to run ur PC?

    I think there is a timeout of some sort, maybe network related. OO loads in less than 5 seconds on my box, why should it take 30 seconds to load a document? Something must be wrong.

    No changes made what so ever.

    I'm running on MacBook 5,1. When OO is "hanging" during load/save, CPU load is less than 5%, so i guess it is some kind of timeout.

    Just tried to disconnect the network cable, and guess what - it loads any document in a fraction of a second. This really appears to be some kind network related timeout.

    Well how about that then !.
    Just to confirm that this does indeed work.

    Not that I know of. How would I check ?

    Edit, from wikipedia
    Intercepting proxies are also commonly used by ISPs in some countries to save upstream bandwidth and improve customer response times by caching. This is more common in countries where bandwidth is more limited (e.g. island nations) or must be paid for.
    Well New Zealand is both an island nation and we do pay for allocation/Mb so it may apply. Must check with ISP.

    Though, why would Open Office be trying to access the web when I am opening local documents ?? Seems rather 'odd' behavior.

    I have experienced it as well. It is really annoying.
    I downloaded OpenOffice 3.2.1 and uninstalled the default OpenOffice 3.2.0, but it still takes too long.

    What is the issue? All I want to do is write a <snip> novel without issues, is that so much to ask?
    I'm using Abiword in the meantime, until Oracle fixes the issues.
