Subject [users@httpd] Apache for arm
Date Mon, 15 Aug 2005 21:56:30 GMT
Hello everyone...

I'm fairly new at setting up linux applications, so please bear with me 

I'm trying to get apache running on a arm9 processor.  The operating 
system on this processor doesn't have any of the normal libraries, and 
there isn't much room.  So, whatever I install has to be statically 
compiled and as small as possible.

I think I've figured out how to get the configure script to use the 
cross compiler, and I've sorted out a few problems along the way.  The 
configure, make, and make install commands now all work without 
reporting any errors.

However, when I try to run httpd on the arm board, I get the same 
message that results if a progam is not compiled with the -static tag.  
(./httpd: No such file or directory - when the file definitely exists)

I understand that the problem could be with the cross compiler (already 
fixed a few of those last week).  However, I'd like to rule out any 
stupid mistakes I may be making :)  I'm currently trying to get it to 
compile statically by entering the following commands before running 

export CFLAGS="-static"
export LDFLAGS="-static"

Is there anything else I should be doing?  The -static tag shows up on 
every compile line when make is run, including the one for httpd itself.

Also, the file is currently about 4 MB, which is pretty large.  I 
imagine it will get larger if I am successful in getting it to be 
static.  Is there any way to reduce the size of the final executable?

Thanks in advance,

Grant Rutherford
