No spellchecking in FreeBSD OOo 3.0.0

Eric Hoch
Hi all,

first of all I'm pretty new to FreeBSD and so far I installed only
a PC-BSD, DesktopBSD and a FreeBSD in a VMWare Fusion Virtual
Machine on my Mac.

On the german users mailinglist one user asked if there are
dictionaries for the german language and how to install them on
FreeBSD. We gave him the standard answer for this and his response
was that even en-US spellchecking isn't working in OOo 3.0.0 under
FreeBSD 7.1 and that he also isn't able to install the extensions
for the various german dictionaries, spellchecking and
hyphernation. In fact no extensions can be installed at all as we
discovered later on in this topic.

Out of curiosity I installed the above mentioned flavours of
FreeBSD 7.x and they all showed the same behaviour that was already
described in the thread on the german mailinglist, spellchecking is
not working for en-US, de-DE and extension can't be installed at
all.

I couldn't find an issue for this in issuetracker so I want to know
if this is a known issue at all or if this function is off by
default/design?

I tried the downloads from ooopackages.good-day.net and the port
installation out of FreeBSD 7.1 and 7.1pre2 which is the base for
DesktopBSD and they both showed the above behaviour.

We're there any QA's done for OOo 3.0.0 under FreeBSD or are only
builds provided?

Regards,
Eric

really needed...

no QA, just providing packages (by Jack L., see release@ ML) .

That is <http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=98781>  
"Cannot install extension : 'bad tranfer url'," I would say.
