Tried again with this and I'm sure nobody is fixing this problem.
The x86_64 bit version of apache 2.0.53 just hangs the computer on incoming requests after the second page external web page request..
I even loaded the 2.0.54 version direct from apache and compiled that. It was still faulty. I omitted, php_mysql, ssl and php so the problem is not in these modules.
I have had to return to the only 64 bit apache version that works is Mandrake 10.1. (The 10.2 has the same problem as Suse 9.3) The last 64 bit Suse that still works is 9.1.
Anyone, got MDK10.2, or Suse 9.3 to work on a 64 bit platform with 64bit code?
