Xampps on Damn Small Linux Embedded - not possible


XAMPPS is basically the new name for LAMP, which stands for Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP. Because the platform these days run on Windows, Mac OS, BSD, and other platforms, they have change the name to XAMPPS.

I had this idea of creating a portable XAMPPS on a stick. I would be able to run XAMPPS on machines I don't have admin access to, such as at a friend's house without disturbing the host system's files. Damn Small Linux seemed like a good choice. It was design for low resource and there is actually a QEMU version called DSL Embedded.

Sadly, this did not work. While it was not difficult to install XAMPPS under DSL Embedded, I got an error 139 when I started XAMPPS from Apache. Reading the Apache error log did not help with diagnosing the problem.

Searching on the web indicate that others encountered the same issue. The solution is to run KQEMU, and accelerator module that can speed up QEMU. Unfortunately, KQEMU requires admin permission on the host system to install. I doubt my friends would be happy if I started to install KQEMU on their machine. I will try to see if I can get it working with Puppy Linux, since someone seemed to have created a QEMU version.

You mean compiled from source with all the right versions of libraries DSL Embedded uses?
Could stracing the startup of the components possibly help understand what's segfaulting and why?

Maybe it would be good to reference a few related URI's here since most I've seen do not relate to *starting* httpd but make processes, running applications as CGI's and such.

No, I wasn't aware that QEMU runs on different libraries. I thought it was just an environment that the OS runs under.

Frankly, I just want to get XAMPPS working. I don't realy have time to look into system configuration

I was talking about DSL.

With all due respect but if you don't want to allocate the time to do things "right" then that's not *my* problem.

It's merely a statement of fact. My purpose was to get XAMPP working. It would be nice to do it under QEMU, but it is not my main goal. I have managed to get it working outside of QEMU any way.

It is clearly not your problem. I was really trying to see if other people have ran into the same problem and have solved it. I am sorry that it sounded offensive.

That's allright. Glad to see you've fixed it yourself.

Maybe post the fix here for others that find your thread?

There is no fix, the standard XAMPP install works just fine in standard Damn Small Linux. It only blows up in QEMU
