Subject Can't install mod_perl
Date Fri, 13 Jul 2007 15:48:40 GMT

I am trying hard to install mod_perl under SuSE X86_64 but I cannot do it.

It gives the error below on the "make" step. I have searched for this error 
on the net, and I found only that perl could be badly installed, or Apache.

I installed perl using the /lib64 /usr/lib64 and /usr/local/lib64 
directories and not the default (/lib /usr/lib and /usr/local/lib).
I have also chose to install it with 64 bit support.

The problem is that I don't know how to be sure that Apache is installed 
with 64 bit support.

I have also tried by installing Active Perl for Linux X86_64 which I guess 
it was compiled correctly, but it gave the same error on the "make" step for 
First I installed perl using default libraries (from /lib, /usr/lib...) and 
I wasn't able to compile DBD::mysql. After using /lib64, /usr/lib64... I was 
able to compile DBD::mysql, so I think perl is installed correctly.

This is why I think Apache is not installed as it should, but I don't know 
how to install it with 64 bit support.

Please tell me, have you succeeded to install mod_perl under a X86_64 
machine? If yes, please advice what should I do.

If you didn't, do you know if a 32 bit Linux OS can be installed under a 64 
bit machine? Is it adviceable to do this for a production machine?

If it helps, here is the result of `uname -a`:
Linux duahp #1 SMP Wed May 3 04:53:23 UTC 2006 x86_64 x86_64 
x86_64 GNU/Linux

Thank you very much.
