Ok thanks

Excellent, verified...

I used it on the installed httpd as I've always done and was recommended 
to me by a dev member some time ago, that shows nothing, doing it on your 
above file shows:

ldd /usr/local/apache/lib/apr-util-1/ =>  (0xffffe000) => /usr/lib/mysql/ 
(0xb7e26000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0xb7e12000) => /lib/ (0xb7de4000) => /lib/ (0xb7dcd000) => /lib/ (0xb7da6000) => /lib/ (0xb7d8f000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0xb7d4e000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0xb7c10000) => /lib/ (0xb7ace000)
         /lib/ (0x80000000) => /lib/ (0xb7aca000)

Ah this is the culprit, ldd on httpd now confirms mysql support :)
I (like most admins I think) only concerned myself with the Apache 'changes'
file, which mentions nothing of this, I never went looking for other included
changelogs, perhaps this should be mentioned in the changes/README.mysql 
file, as others will in time no doubt hit the same traps I did as 2.2.8 
was rather straight forward and simple,  2.2.9 gives the appearance its
broken but is not when you have the extra information, was there any 
operational reason why it was changed to this?

Incidently this has also cured my segfault on httpd -k stop

Thanks Tom, much appreciated for your assistance.


I read usenet and lists in pine. But m$ outlook, thunderbird and gmail
often use html span/whatever for quotes, makes it hard to tell who said
what, so I dont try. If I ignore you, thats why! Use a compliant mailer.
