Subject Re: Compile mod_perl 1.0 on ubuntu 12.04 or later
Date Tue, 26 Feb 2019 10:32:47 GMT
Hi,

Thanks a lot it worked !!!
In the process i needed some tweaks, maybe they can help a little more to others.
The perlbrew install command was failing signaling download error, it was the inexistente
folder, so i creted it:
mkdir -p ~/perl5/perlbrew/dists/
Then it worked fine:
perlbrew install -Accflags=-fPIC -v --noman --notest -j9 --as perl-5.10.1-apache-1.3 5.10.1
perlbrew use perl-5.10.1-apache-1.3

sudo apt install cpanminus
cpanm -q --notest LWP::UserAgent

I left all in a folder called src, and make some test runs, so i automate deleting perl and
apache folders and uncompress again.
cd src/
rm -rf mod_perl-1.31 apache_1.3.42

tar xzvf apache_1.3.42.tar.gz
tar xzvf mod_perl-1.31.tar.gz

Patch aplying automation too:
cd mod_perl-1.31/
patch -p1 < ../mod_perl-1.32.patch

cd ..
cd apache_1.3.42/
patch -p1 < ../apache-getline.patch
patch -p1 < ../gcc-inline-fix.patch

Finally, in the environment created i used "cpan" clasic command. "cpanm" was not installing
modules in the right path.
Dependencies: For avoid question on follow dependencies before invoking cpan invoke from shell:
export PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT=1

Then, newer module versions where failing the tests all the time, so i installed them with
force, i.e. for DBI module:
force install DBI

Thanks again,
Hans
