installation log

Description of problem:
On F11-beta machine, the dirsrv-admin script looks for wrong files:
# setup-ds-admin.pl --debug
[09/04/01:19:25:31] - [Setup] Info Updating the configuration for the httpd engine . . .
[09/04/01:19:25:31] - [Setup] Info Starting admin server . . .

Comment 1 Nathan Kinder 2009-04-02 18:06:58 UTC
It appears that both mod_file_cache.so and mod_mem_cache.so are no longer a part of the httpd package as they were in F10 and earlier.  I don't believe that we use these modules, so it may be safe to remove them from our httpd config file template.

Comment 2 Nathan Kinder 2009-04-02 18:12:19 UTC
There is actually a bug open on these libraries no longer being provided with httpd (bug #493458).

The changelog for the httpd rpm on F11 shows that we explicitly are not building mod_mem_cache or mod_file_cache as of httpd-2.2.11-8, but I'm not sure why this change was made.

Comment 3 Rich Megginson 2009-04-09 14:47:42 UTC
Do you have the patches to remove those modules from httpd.conf?  If so, I can get them into f11.

Built.  Please try the build and let me know if it works for you.

* Thu Apr 09 2009 Rich Megginson <rmeggins@redhat.com> - 1.1.7-4
- Resolves: bug 493424
- Description: dirsrv-admin initscript looks for nonexistent library
- Added patch to remove those modules from the httpd.conf

I'm going to leave this bug open - we should at least remove these modules from the default admin server module list in the next release, and probably revisit the way we generate the httpd.conf.

Sorry for the late reply. I can confirm that this version fixed the problem for me.

Thanks for the quick turnaround!

Comment 7 Rich Megginson 2009-04-15 14:29:58 UTC
The real problem here is that the admin server has many unneeded modules in its config.  We need to remove all unneeded modules.

Comment 8 borisbar7 2009-08-07 11:26:26 UTC
I use this modules.
It's useful modules, please add to next build.

one more bug:


Comment 9 Charlweed Hymerfan 2009-10-09 16:40:59 UTC
This bug is still preventing installs of 389 server on F11.
The patch above can still be applied while work on eliminating unused modules continues.

yes, Admin Server & console works fine on RHEL6.
