Best linux distro, more info

Hi again,

When I check for missing dependancies it does not look as bad as I first
thought:

perl sbin/rt-test-dependencies --with-myself --with-modperl1 |grep
MISSING
Apache::Request …MISSING

So I try to do a perl -MCPAN -e ‘install Apache::Request’ and it tells
me
mod_perl 1.x ( < 1.99) is required at Makefile.PL line 29.
BEGIN failed–compilation aborted at Makefile.PL line 31.

It seems my RH 9 box has (rpm -qa |grep mod_perl) mod_perl-1.99_07-5
on.

CPAN tries to install libapreq 1.3. So I tried the latest
libapreq2-2.02-dev
perl Makefile.PL --with-apache2-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs

This complains that my apache is not new enough?:

apxs:Error: Invalid query string APR_BINDIR'. apxs:Error: Invalid query stringAPU_BINDIR’.
build/version_check.pl failed: apache2 version 2.0.40 unsupported
(2.0.46 or greater is required).
configure: error: Bad apache2 version

So, do I upgrade apache or downgrade mod_perl? I cant alter too much
stuff as this box does a lot of other things. Is there an easy solution
to this?

Thanks

Mike

RH9 has mod_perl2 (even if it shows up as 1.99, this was a 

mod_perl devel decision, ref: http://perl.apache.org).

so you should do:

perl sbin/rt-test-dependencies --with-mysql --with-modperl2

I don’t recommend RT on RH9, because it’s not supported more:
Advisories for other currently supported products
Red Hat Linux 9 (Shrike) End of life April 30, 2004

If you don’t want bother yourself and community with mp2 problems then
you don’t want mp2 from RH9 RPMs, but FastCGI or mp1(no fresh RPMs) or
mp2 from CVS.

There is also no mysql4 only 3.x in RH9.

I reviewed all posts that I could find about “best distro” in my
archives and write it in wiki FAQ:

PS: I ran RT on RH9 based distro :slight_smile: Installation was pain

Ruslan,
Thanks for info. I now have RT working on RH 9 using FastCGI.
However my next problem is the mailgate.
My system is using qmail. I seem unable to get email in to RT. I was hoping to be able to email say
faults@mysystem.com and have the email enter in to the faults queue.
I have a .qmail-faults file which has:
|/usr/local/bin/rt-mailgate --queue faults --action correspond --url http://mysystem.com/

I dont get a bounce back, nothing. I am unable to see the email in the faults queue?

Thanks

RT Developer and Administrator training is coming to LA, DC and Frankfurt this spring and summer.

Sign up early, as class space is limited.

My system is using qmail. I seem unable to get email in to RT. I was
hoping to be able to email say faults@mysystem.com and have the email
enter in to the faults queue.
I have a .qmail-faults file which has:
|/usr/local/bin/rt-mailgate --queue faults --action correspond --url
http://mysystem.com/

I dont get a bounce back, nothing. I am unable to see the email in the
faults queue?

What does qmail log?
