Description Björn Michaelsen 2012-03-21 06:49:24 UTC

describes how to "binary bisect" a LibreOffice install, which help s developers to corner a regression to exactly the change that introduced the trouble.

It would be great to have this in a ready-to-go VirtualBox image, so that for example testers on Windows can contribute here too.

I would like to work on this.

From http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Development/Easy_Hacks :
"If a task has an owner without an update in a week, feel free to notify them that you're taking that on yourself ..."

So, I'm taking this :)

Now finished :) Ubuntu 12.04 x64 with ready-to-use bibisect 3.5, 3.6 2012-04-28, and LibreOffice 3.5.2 installed by default with Ubuntu.

The question is, where should I upload it? It is 2.62 GB.

Hi Korrawit,
great to hear! I wonder about bibisect-3.5 working on the 12.04 LTS release though, IIRC those were not compatible (IIRC different libjpeg?). Did you do anything to fix them up?

I wanted to rebuild the ~50 bibisect-3.5 builds on the 12.04 LTS and thus make us having _one_ bibisect covering the whole range from ~summer last year up till now. But if you got this running on 12.04, I could spare myself that effort.
Comment 6 Korrawit Pruegsanusak 2012-05-08 20:32:17 UTC
Bibisect 3.5 really has problem in 12.04, the console shouted libjpeg62.so (or somesuch) not found, so I installed libjpeg62 and it just works!

And bug 48348 comment 3 is bibisected in 12.04 => I assume it really works :)

Adding thorsten in CC to get some comfy webspace on TDF infra.
Comment 9 Korrawit Pruegsanusak 2012-05-30 08:35:14 UTC
Thanks Thorsten for adding to TDF infra at http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/bibisect/

Mark as fixed. Will update wiki later.
