Hello fellow Slackers! I'm a longtime slack user, formerly a professional linux sysadmin. I like to think of myself as quite proficient at most linux tasks, however C/++ building and linking is outside my forte.
My box is a Thinkpad T-30/2Gp6/2GRAM running 12.2 with every package except the ones in /E. I have been able to build numerous other software from source without any difficulty, including several 188.8.131.52 kernels.
I've been having a heckuva time trying to follow the phpMyAdmin installation instructions at http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...e-12.2-692117/
I've been able to setup a virtual host at http://dbadmin
without any trouble, and I get the "unable to load mcrypt" error.
I built/installed the mcrypt package from slackbuilds.org without any problems.
I copied the alpine and php folders from the installation disk to /tmp and added the mcrypt include directive to php.Slackbuild, and changed the architecture to i686 and added an elif to pass "-march i686 -mtune i686". When I first tried to build php5, I got the "unable to locate libc-client.a" error. /usr/local/lib/c-client/ showed numerous headers in ./include, but nothing in ./lib. No library in /tmp/alpine either. Much gnashing of teeth later, I downloaded the src from UW and built it. I had to pass "SSLINCLUDES=/usr/include/openssl" to make in order to get a successful build. I then cp c-client.a to /usr/local/lib/c-client/lib/ and ln-s to [path]/libc-client.a and ran ldconfig.
php.Slackbuild quit complaining about the IMAP library. Now, however, it won't build /tmp/package-php/usr/lib/httpd/modules/libphp5.so no matter what architecture option I select in the slackbuild script. I have posted the complete output from php.Slackbuild on my site: http://rtfm.brainycat.com/php-5.2.8_build-out.txt
Interestingly, the section on libtool configuration seems to imply that gcc doesn't think it can build shared objects. I'm not sure why that is. When I build my kernels, I like to keep the kernel as small as possible and use lots of modules. Does that not use libtool? I'm confused.
Any help would be most appreciated! If you need any more troubleshooting info, let me know what I need to do and I'll be happy to provide more information. Thanks!
BTW, I was not able to use the bbcode links in the bulletin board editor. NoScript is allowing *linuxquestions.org. Not sure what the issue is there.
