Add line as shown below for, for instance, 127.0.0.1 galaxy localhost
4) and add a line so it looks like this:
127.0.0.1 galaxy localhost galaxy.(none)
6) now LibreOffice.org Writer and Calc open fast when the network
connection is attached.
For anyone new reading this. replace "galaxy" with whatever you have
named your computer.

I'm running LibreOffice 3.4.6 OOO340m1 (Build:602) on Debian Squeeze.
The progress bar on the splash screen stops part-way during startup
for about 10 seconds. During this time LO sends a request of some sort
over the network connection (lights flash on router) every 2 seconds,
5 times in all. LO then completes startup.
- with the splash screen turned off in /etc/libreoffice/sofficerc (the
pause and network requesting still happen)
- when launching LO by itself, or when opening a Writer or other LO
document through a file manager
- with Java RE option on or off
With an LO document already open, there is no pause when opening a
second LO document. The pause only occurs during startup.
How to stop LO from sending requests over the network on startup, so
that it opens without the 10-second pause?
Tools > Options > LibreOffice > Online Update
If an update option of Daily is checked, would this account for the
network connection? Or, might it be a bug in that every time LO is
opened it checks for an update instead of once a day? If so, would
unchecking "Check for updates automatically" stop this?
I don't know. These instructions go back to the first release of
LibreOffice when it opened initially really slowly for me. If I recall
correctly, they were originally for open office. I found them on the
Internet. It was essential for LibreOffice 3.3x and 3.4x for me. I've
seen less difference in 3.5x. I've only updated LibreOffice when a new
version is out, such as 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52.
