Apache install problems on Suse 11.1


I am new to Linux and have been having problems installing Apache. I have been searching the internet and have removed some errors but I still have the following:

configure: error: in `/usr/local/httpd-2.2.14':
configure: error: C preprocessor "gcc -E" fails sanity check

When I check the config.log I find these errors:

gcc version 4.3.2 [gcc-4_3-branch revision 141291] (SUSE Linux)
configure:4713: $? = 0
configure:4702: gcc -V >&5
gcc: '-V' option must have argument
configure:4713: $? = 1
configure:4702: gcc -qversion >&5
gcc: unrecognized option '-qversion'
gcc: no input files

and

configure:5231: result: gcc -E

As I said - this is fewer errors than I started with but would appreciate any help finding a fix for the above. Thanks in advance!

Welcome to LQ.

You don't need to compile Apache yourself, there are binary packages for it, available for Open Suse 11.1 Why not use it ?

Just follow this link

I have to agree. compiling yourself is more headache than it's worth when you have YAST. Run that, and do a search for apache. I think it shows up as apache 2 pre-fork or something like that
