Subject description: Gnumeric crashes when anything is entered.
 

I have Slacko64 running on a Compaq CQ58, with AMD E1. Booting from eiher DVD or Flash drive.It looks good and almost everything works; my aim is to migrate all data from Win 8.1, including spreadsheets.
Problem - Gnumeric cuts out instantly when I try to enter ANY data, by any means.
Open Office or Libreoffice would be good, but I cannot see any way to install them, or reinstall Gnumeric from another source (eg Pet).
Help?

Hi,

Could you try out .sfs file for Libreoffice from HERE.
These sfs files are for Fatdog64 but some of them work in Slacko64.
Worth a try.

- Neeraj.

HI
Neeraj, thank you very much for the tip. First time lucky, I tried the version with 'amd' in the title.
It works!!
Regards.

I found the bug and the fix for gnumeric. Apparently pcre_info is deprecated and completely removed. :/
The above is a link to the patch to apply to goffice which I modded and applied.

And the modded patch:
