I meant this to go to the entire list - it’s a sad tale of trying to
get mod_perl-1.99_09-10 installed into a Redhat 8 system. While
I’d be grateful for any suggestions on how to handle the latest
stumbling block, there’s also a question about FastCGI at the end
(I don’t know if it’s safe to install FastCGI on top of mod_perl…)

You might grab the newer src rpms and rebuild them against your existing
apache/perl installation - this should work, but you might need to throw
a few extra packages on the system for a handful of dependencies.

Not sure how well you’ll do on a Redhat 8 system, but this worked well
enough on Redhat 9.

Thanks for the suggestion, Mick. Unfortunately, this leads to the
dependency problems under Redhat 8 (sigh):

->rpmbuild --rebuild 10.src.rpm
Installing mod_perl-1.99_09-10.src.rpm
error: Failed build dependencies:
httpd-devel >= 2.0.45-14 is needed by mod_perl-1.99_09-10
->rpm -ivh --test httpd

warning: httpd-2.0.47-6.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 897da07a
error: Failed dependencies:
libcrypto.so.4 is needed by httpd-2.0.47-6
libssl.so.4 is needed by httpd-2.0.47-6

So, that means installing openssl-0.9.7a-23 and friends. Which I’ve done,
but mod_perl-1.99_09-10 won’t install from the src rpm because:

(omitting the rpmbuild step that builds the binary rpms from the srpm)

->rpm -ivh mod*
error: Failed dependencies:
perl(Apache::FunctionTable) is needed by mod_perl-1.99_09-10
perl(Apache::StructureTable) is needed by mod_perl-1.99_09-10
perl(Apache::TestConfigParse) is needed by mod_perl-1.99_09-10
perl(Apache::TestConfigPerl) is needed by mod_perl-1.99_09-10

And httpd won’t start without installing mod_perl-1.99_09-10 because
mod_auth_mysql.c and mod_auth_pgsql.c are now out of date… (And I
assume it won’t start if with the new mod_perl because of this.)

I feel like I’m falling down a rabbit hole…

Maybe I should just go with FastCGI - are there any known problems with
FastCGI and a Redhat 8 system?

It is. Well, “alongside”, not “on top of”. The two are unrelated
and non-conflicting.
