Subject 1.2.1 problems with Linux/GLIBC (fwd)
Date Mon, 07 Jul 1997 19:49:20 GMT

One for the linux gurus.

The suggestion is better off rejected IMO since ErrorDocument is there
to allow infinite customisation, and sprucing up the default errors could
be a never ending task as one more 'minor' change follows another.

Subject: 1.2.1 problems with Linux/GLIBC

there are a few minor problems when trying to compile Apache 1.2.1 with
Linux 2.x and GLIBC 2.x:

1) The crypt library (required with GLIBC) isn't included by default.
   I'd like to fix this, but I haven't found a way to autoconf glibc yet.

2) buff.c includes <sys/uio.h>, which you can't do in GLIBC (redefinition)
   Same thing here - the fix is easy, but I can't autoconf glibc.

3) Not a bug, but a suggestion:

I'd like to see the following patch included - it shows the administrator
address as hyperlink rather than just text in the default error message:
