Problems installing 'libapreq2-2.04_03-dev

RH Sekaly's picture

I am trying to install & configure using Mandrake Linux 10.1
I have installed the following apps:
Apache 2.0.50 (Mandrake Linux/7.2.101mdk)
mod_perl 1.99_16
Perl v5.8.5
mod_ssl 2.0.50
OpenSSL 0.9.7d
PHP 4.3.8

When I run the command "perl Makefile.PL", everything works well until the end. The last few lines of the out are as follows:

Checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
./configure: line 1: apsx command not found
./configure: line 1: apsx command not found
./configure: line 1: apsx command not found
./configure: line 1: apsx command not found
./configure: line 1: apsx command not found
build/version_check.pl failed: no version_string found in ''.
configure: error: Bad apache2 version

Can anyone help??

I followed the directions in the article but i get a 500 error from apache when executing the http://webserver/Club/

below is the dump from /var/log/httpd/error_log
I googled this error and cant figure out whats wrong.

failed to resolve handler `ClubDB': Can't locate Apache/Request.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.4/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.3/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.2/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.1/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.4 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.3 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.2 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.1 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.5/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.4/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.3/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.2/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.1/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.5 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.4 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.3 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.2 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.1 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl . /etc/httpd/ /etc/httpd/lib/perl) at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/Apache/MVC.pm line 22.\nCompilation failed in require at (eval 5) line 3.\n\t...propagated at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/base.pm line 85.\nBEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/ClubDB.pm line 5.\nCompilation failed in require at (eval 4) line 3.\n

Article improvements:

1. do:

install Bundle::Maypole

2. The article totally glosses over setting up mod_perl lib directories. It oddly states to drop the ClubDB.pm into /etc/httpd/lib/perl directory, even though it never talks about how to set it up. So, (assuming redhat, here), make sure your /etc/httpd/conf.d/perl.conf reads something like:

PerlSetEnv Perl5LIB /etc/httpd/lib/perl

...Agree,

Author has not provided any significant information about server side settings, also I find it article "agressivly redhat friendly".

Small shell for include testing:
$ cat testinc.pl
print "Content-type: text/plain\n\n";
print join "\n", @INC

If debian user try installing "libapache-mod-perl-doc" for more info about CGI/mod_perl stuff portings.

Hope it helps...

RedHat/Fedora Friendly

barryp's picture

An editorial decision was made to target one specific distribution (see my reply to another comment at the bottom of the actual article for the reasons behind this). As I have only so much time, I went with what I knew which was Fedora/RedHat. I have installed Maypole on RedHat 9 and Fedora 3 - granted, it takes a while to get everything set-up but, once it is, it works well. The Soccer Club example system will work on Maypole if Maypole is installed correctly. If Maypole has trouble installing, it's really just a matter of keeping at it until it does. There's a load of help on the Maypole mailing-list archive.

As there appears to be no link to the actual source code, here it is (from my own web-site) which should save some people some time.

Hope this helps.

One Click, Universal Protection: Implementing Centralized Security Policies on Linux Systems

As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
