Description of problem:
It would be nice if --enable-rule=SHARED_CORE were included in the config 
ready for 7.2 users who use kylix, or kylix-generated apache modules that 
will be depoloyed on 7.2 machines (as its too late for 7.1 and 7.0)

Comment 1 Joe Orton 2002-09-11 20:21:33 UTC
Shared core is no longer supported upstream in Apache 2.0; this change is too
fundamental to make for the 1.3 packages and I don't see a good justification -
why does Kylix require a shared core for Apache modules it creates?

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2002-09-12 07:35:56 UTC
I don't think the change is very fundamental at all, it's one line in the .spec 
file and doesn't affect how apache is stopped or started.

Kylix needs it because the apache modules it generates want to link against 
libhttp (or whatever it is).  Why they did it that way I don't know.

If as you say Apache 2.0 can't do that I guess the Kylix folk will rethink 
anyway.
