How to determine compile time arguments for an installed rpm?


Hi...

How do I find out what options have been used at compile time for an application - lets say apache ?? Just to be more clear, I mean to ask - for example, we provide options like

--prefix=/some/path
--enable-something

....and so on

Regards,

amit

This isnt what I am looking for..I tried that command and it lists the configuration files containted in the rpm file.

How do I find out if apache was compiled with php, mod_ssl support ? My Red Hat 9 includes rpms for apache and php. After installing the php rpm, I am able to view php script output on my webpage. But how to confirm that apache was compiled with support for php and mod_ssl??

Is there any command or utility that can display the compile time arguments specified to './configure' command ?

Regards,

amit

I need to get this query solved coz I want to compile apache from source, but I want to make sure that I dont miss any compile time arguments so that my own compilation can successfully replace the apache provided by Red Hat..

amit

But for what? As far as I know, Webmin is used for configuring services. I am not aware if it compiles programs too (or provides the arguments supplied to ./configure during compile time, which is what I am precisely looking for)...

Its really surprising that so far no one has been able to provide an exact solution for my question. Anyways, I hope that experts at LQ will chip-in to resolve my query.

Regards,

amit
