Subject RE: [users@httpd] Problem compiling 2.2.0 on solaris 8 with enabling so
Date Tue, 24 Jan 2006 08:03:52 GMT
Since when did libexpat become a module??

The symbol XmlInitUnknownEncoding is defined in srclib/apr-util/xml/expat/lib/xmltok.c which
is part of libexpat. So its plain impossible for XmlInitUnknownEncoding not to be defined.

Have you tried to do an "ldd -v" to see if there is any other library that libexpat
depends on and which cannot be found?

It may be that Apache does not like the lib/ module. Try commenting it out in httpd.conf.
See if Apache will start then. If so, then that is obviously where the problem is.


In theory, theory and practice are the same; In practice they are not.
