OOo 2.0.3 is due to be released on Thursday but I've just seen a report on the releases mailing list of someone having crashes of RC5 pt_BR on multiple machines running Windows 98SE. Testing was fine under Windows 2000/XP but not many people have 98 anymore to do testing. I don't have a 98 machine with me at the moment so can't test it but I would suggest someone looks at this and puts it in IZ if it fails. 98, 98SE and Millenium would be worth doing. This would be important to do as a release that breaks support for the 9x line completely would be terrible.

Edit: download from the mirror network manually.

Yep, tried this today (at work) EN-GB crashes consistently under win98se using Calc (didn't try anything else) I can't remember the error message, but no crash log was generated. I needed to work on something, so I re-installed 2.0.2. I'm not sure how to submit a bug report, can someone do this for me?

Thanks

I have filed an issue regarding crashes in Calc under Windows Me. Using Calc in 2.0.3 RC5 is impossible for me because GDI resources quickly drop to zero causing both Calc and Crashrep to crash. This problem probably also affects Windows 98 and 98SE, but it doesn't affect Windows XP.

It looks like we may have a 2.0.3 which does not work under Windows 9x at all.

I'm glad that I'm not alone with this problem...

About the not generation of the crash report, take a look in this issue:

I think OOo can't get any stack trace to send in Win9x plataform.

I have been consistently crashing OOo2.0.3rc5 on Win98 SE in a very short Writer doc when I click about very much in Insert > Special Character.

Same here on Windows Me. Just scrolling through the Special Characters window without clicking causes GDI resources to drop to zero.
