Description Fabian Bernd 2004-02-09 22:38:07 EST

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5)

Description of problem:
I've noticed recently that the builtin deflate module is not working
properly. It is impossible to compress any ohter mime-type than text/html.
For example text/xml is not working
For example if I add the Following line to the httpd.conf
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html text/plain text/xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/*

nothing but text/html is compressed.

The deflate module is a core module of the apache server and should be
working properly.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install httpd
2. add LoadModuleDirective for defalte module
3. add Outputfilter DEFLATE for text/xml mime type to httpd.conf
4. Try to get a xml file delivered compressed

Actual Results:  Nothing, thats the point

Expected Results:  the file should be transfered compressed. I already
told you.

I can reproduce this as well.

It seems to be fixed in FC1. I've had no luck making it work in RH9,

(If the SMP kernel were stable running NFS umounts, I'd have upgraded
already, but I cannot upgrade with a stock redhat kernel until is fixed)

Yes it's a bug in 2.0.40; we'll include the fix in a forthcoming erratum.
