Description tanner 1999-10-11 20:52:06 UTC
apache-devel-1.3.9 has a bug where:

/usr/sbin/apxs -q LIBEXECDIR

returns, just "module"

Under 1.3.6-7 the same command returns

Comment 1 tanner 1999-10-11 21:03:59 UTC
It looks like the problem is in the apache_1.3.9-apxs.patch:

-my $CFG_LIBEXECDIR    = '@libexecdir@';   # substituted
+my $CFG_LIBEXECDIR    = 'modules';        # substituted

Not sure why you are removing the @libexecdir@, but taking that out
fixes the problem.

I'll await the official word from you.

Oh, Tanner, that doesn't fix much. The broken AXPS from 136 couldn't
-a modules correctly.  The 'fixed' one can't -i them correctly.  it's
painfully obvious that this file wasn't tested even as simply as an
apxs -c -i -a mod_foo.c.

A further patch, utilising the very coding that apci was probably
trying to avoid, may fix the behaviour:

! my $dir = 'modules';
 $dir =~ s|^$CFG_PREFIX/?||;
 $dir =~ s|(.)$|$1/|;

another almost-as bad patch, same area:

 my $dir = $CFG_LIBEXECDIR;
-$dir =~ s|^$CFG_PREFIX/?||;
 $dir =~ s|(.)$|$1/|;

the second one is no better thant he first, imho, because it changes
the 'format' or standard location of the modules in the httpd.conf
file. Hey, at least it may go.  CAVEAT:  I don't do a lick of perl.
At least I tested the first patch, which makes me a step ahead of
RHQA in one aspect.

Hmm.  My email wasn't added as it should have been.
