Description Stephen John Smoogen 2003-06-04 15:51:20 EDT
Description of problem:

Trying to create a test module for working with the instructions say to use 
apxs -g -n <Fill in module here>

The problem is that the Makefile created looks for a makefile that doesnt get
included (special.mk)

This means that nothing can be created and the tutorial can't go much further.
Trying to include the rules.mk instead just causes a no-op to happen when make
Comment 1 Joe Orton 2003-06-05 05:06:44 EDT
Thanks for the report.   This will be fixed in httpd-2.0.45-10 in Raw Hide.
Comment 2 Guillaume Perréal 2003-06-11 18:01:35 EDT
special.mk exists in the httpd build directory but is not packaged into
httpd-devel. By the way, there is another trouble in config_vars.mk :
/usr/include/httpd isn't included.

It seems that using the following patch on httpd.spec seems to solve thoses two

Could this be (checked then) included in next RHL9 releases of httpd ? It's very
annoying to recompile the whole package for each release (as I already have the
same kind of trouble with the RHL8 httpd RPMs).

Best regards,

Comment 3 Joe Orton 2003-06-11 18:11:25 EDT
Yes, I'll put the fix in for future 8.0/9 errata too, that's why I left this bug
Comment 4 Joe Orton 2003-06-27 08:38:12 EDT
`apxs -q LIBTOOL` is also worth fixing.
Comment 5 Joe Orton 2003-09-12 07:03:22 EDT
