From:Holger Zeinert (

So, here's what I did:

- got all necessary packages

- check out of current version using svn

- created a tree of softlinks in /tmp/apache2: bin/ including all apache* and apxs* from /usr/bin and /usr/sbin conf/ including all files from /etc/apache2/* include/ including all files from /usr/include/apache2 and /usr/include/apr*/*

- in bin/ I created softlinks from apxs2 to apxs and apache2ctl to apachectl

- then configure: ./configure --with-tcl=... \ --with-apache=/tmp/apache2 \ --with-apache-base-dir=/tmp/apache2 \ --with-apxs=1

- then "make"

this produces some warnings, but at the end is created.

- then "make install"

This gives an error about mkinstalldirs

make install Making install in src make[1]: Entering directory `/home/vmware/rivet/rivet/src' Making install in apache-2 make[2]: Entering directory `/home/vmware/rivet/rivet/src/apache-2' make[3]: Entering directory `/home/vmware/rivet/rivet/src/apache-2' /bin/sh ../../tclconfig/mkinstalldirs /usr/lib/apache2/modules /bin/sh: ../../tclconfig/mkinstalldirs: No such file or directory make[3]: *** [install-apxs_libexecLTLIBRARIES] Error 127 make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/vmware/rivet/rivet/src/apache-2' make[2]: *** [install-am] Error 2 make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/vmware/rivet/rivet/src/apache-2' make[1]: *** [install-recursive] Error 1 make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/vmware/rivet/rivet/src' make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

and in fact the file mkinstalldirs is not included in my tclconfig directory. Where do I get it? Also in older tar files, I did not find this file.

Is there an easy way to do the install manually? I got activated, but it did not find the init.tcl stuff. So, perhaps I can do this manually, but how...

Any idea?

Regards Holger

Can you post more concrete output? I assume, the autoconf/automake issues are not figured out yet completely.

The only question I have right now: does it make sense to test the Apache2 part? I'm willing to do some tests, but if you are saying that this is too early, I will come back later.

I think it is too early for a release, some things still have to be done resp. need more testing and polish. But if you like to test or even participate in development, you are welcome ;-).
