Good news and ...
I tried using the SlackBuild in libreoffice-review with the ch3.ppt test
file and found no problem. I had it running several hours in the
background while doing other things. Occasionally I would flip through a
few pages and all was OK.
I also opened a test file mentioned in the first of the bug reports
above and it also worked without any problem.
The only problem I found was when opening a file provided by someone
else via the libreoffice-dev list. Interestingly, they claim that the
official downloaded version (I'm equating that with the repackaged
libreoffice-review version) loads and runs the test file fine but their
own self-compiled version loads the file very slowly (>10 sec.). A file
demonstrating the problem is provided at
I found that the version in libreoffice-review loads that file
(bigfile.odt) in 2-3secs but crashes immediately loading is complete.
This occurred 100% of the times I tried it. The new LibreOffice
build-from-source SlackBuild, which I have a personal interest in,
handles it OK - loads in 2-3secs and keeps running. Still, I'm not sure
what what to make of the test file - whether its a valid test of
anything - since it looks like gibberish when loaded.
BTW Calligra Author opens bigfile.odt OK (under 3 secs).
Not sure if that helps you decide anything but that is what I found.
