Ping?  All that is required is a rebase to 1.4.32 to correct this issue.

we use lighttpd in a produktion environment, so I build an new src.rpm. The maintener semms to be offline for a long time now.

It's build against CentOS 6.4 and epel and works well on our RHEL 6 servers.

Not tested on Fedora and RHEL 5.

May be somebody will take over the rpm - I'm not a maintener.

I just changed the release to 1.4.32 and adjusted the mod_geoip  patch.

I hope this helps.

Thanks and BR

any news regarding 1.4.32 upstreamed for public release? it's been 8 months since the official version came out, and EPEL still offers only the hole-y 1.4.31. official package maintainer, anyone?

Updated mod_geoip patch for 1.4.32
Comment 10 Anssi Johansson 2013-08-22 13:52:09 EDT
This would really need to get fixed. I built my own 1.4.32 rpms when I grew tired of waiting. Although an updated srpm was already attached above, I'm attaching my own spec file and an updated mod_geoip patch, in case they're easier to work with. http://download.lighttpd.net/lighttpd/releases-1.4.x/lighttpd-1.4.32.tar.bz2 is also needed for building the new rpms.
