Subject Re: mod_perl and httpd-2.4 - update
Date Wed, 25 Jul 2012 09:03:19 GMT

I've been working on mod_perl and httpd-2.4 compatibility again. Current 
status is that I'm able to compile mod_perl with httpd-2.4 on Fedora 17 
(I haven't tested it on different systems) and "make test" more or less 

Since the last update it's huge step forward, because "make test" failed 
just in the beginning previously and mod_perl with httpd-2.4 was quite 
useless (just hello world examples worked).

With my latest patches [1] mod_perl looks usable to me and there are 
only few tests which fails. Many of those tests have to be rewritten, 
because the features they are testing have changed in httpd-2.4.

"Failed 19/242 test programs. 16/2701 subtests failed."

There are some controversial patches with hardcoded things which should 
be fixed too, but I'm not the right person to come with right solution 
so far.

1. needs apr_bucket* functions which comes from aprutil, but it is 
not linked against aprutil for me. I've hardcoded -laprutil-1 in the because I'm not sure how is supposed to work.

2. 0023-Define-perl_module-in-Const.xs.patch
Thanks to modperl header files needs extern perl_module symbol 
but this symbol is not defined in Const.xs. I've defined it there, but 
this definitely need some clean solution.
