mod_perl fails to rebuild in rawhide
Last modified: 2012-07-25 09:01:03 EDT
Description of problem:
I am co-maintainer of a new package which depends on mod_perl. Building my package in rawhide fails with:
Error: Package: mod_perl-2.0.5-8.fc18.x86_64 (fedora)
Requires: httpd-mmn = 20051115-x86-64
Installing: httpd-2.4.1-6.fc18.x86_64 (fedora)
httpd-mmn = 20120211-x86-64
httpd-mmn = 20120211
Attempting to build mod_perl 2.0.5 in mock against rawhide also fails, most likely due to incompatibility with apache 2.4
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
mock -r fedora-devel-x86_64 mod_perl-2.0.5-8.fc18.src.rpm
There's a svn branch dedicated to mod_perl on apache 2.4 you may want to track, in case you're not doing that already:
I'm tracking the branch already, but it's 8 months old and lot of 2.4 API changes were made after that.
Currently I have patch to compile mod_perl with httpd-2.4, but it breaks the API compatibility. Unfortunately there is no consensus if and how to keep to the compatibility. I can't decide it without upstream...
I will continue the discussion with upstream and try to fix it as soon as possible.
This should be fixed in rawhide.
