Plain text please...

You can't run make unless configure works so it's no surprise make
doesn't work.

Configure is failing because "mod_deflate has been requested but can not
be built due to prerequistie failures" [sic] - this means that
mod_deflate needs something to be installed on the system (probably some
library) but can't find it.

The quick fix is to remove the "--enable-deflate" switch from the
configure (do you really need such a specialised module?). If you *do*
need to be able to compress files before sending them to the client
(which is what mod_deflate does) then you have to find out what
prerequisite is missing and install it.

Subject: [users@httpd] apache2 please help

I am getting the following error when trying to install Apache 2 on
linux Fedora:

here is the options that i enable
./configure --enable-so --enable-cgi --enable-info --enable-rewrite
--enable-spelling --enable-usertrack --enable-deflate --enable-ssl

Checking whether to enable mod_deflate..... Configure: error:
mod_deflate has been requested but can not be built due to prerequistie

then when i try to run ' make' i get the following error
make:  no targets specified and no makefile found.   Stop

I am new to linux and i am afraid that it might be a dump question but
please spare a couple of minutes to assist me.

thank you very much in advance.
