Description of problem:
I installed Red Hat 9 on my server, and discovered that I couldn't compile PHP
when mysql was being integrated into it.
I dropped the server back down to Red Hat 8 and it worked fine, then when I
Upgraded the server back to RH9, Apache stopped loading because of the PHP
module wiht the MySQL integrated into it.
The component PHP was complaining about was the GLIBC component.
When I tried installing an earlier version of the glibc component from the RH8
disks to force it to use an earlier version, it just complained that there were
conflicts wiht the package, or that a newer version was already installed.
I tried the same thing on my main system (not my server) which has an Athlon XP
2100+ inside, but I got the same errors.
AMD Athlon 800
Red Hat 9
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure php with mysql integration
here's the error message that I get when compiling PHP:
ext/mysql/libmysql/my_lib.lo(.text+0x3d1): In function `my_dir':
/root/php-4.3.1/ext/mysql/libmysql/my_lib.c:169: undefined reference to `errno'
ext/mysql/libmysql/my_lib.lo(.text+0x5ef): In function `my_stat':
/root/php-4.3.1/ext/mysql/libmysql/my_lib.c:588: undefined reference to `errno'
ext/mysql/libmysql/my_malloc.lo(.text+0xde): In function `my_malloc':
/root/php-4.3.1/ext/mysql/libmysql/my_malloc.c:24: undefined reference to `errno'
ext/mysql/libmysql/my_realloc.lo(.text+0xd5): In function `my_realloc':
/root/php-4.3.1/ext/mysql/libmysql/my_realloc.c:44: undefined reference to `errno'
ext/mysql/libmysql/my_delete.lo(.text+0x86): In function `my_delete':
/root/php-4.3.1/ext/mysql/libmysql/my_delete.c:16: undefined reference to `errno'
more undefined references to `errno' follow
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [sapi/cli/php] Error 1
Also, after checking the glib version, it's glibc-2.3.2-27.9
This is just an indication that somebody isn't able to program. Recompile
whatever package contains the files which claim the undefined references after
to them. ISO C forever and clearly says that the header must be included since
errno can be a macro.
