Is there a way to see what options where given when someone installed a
program. I am using slackware 12.1 and it has Apache installed on it. I didn't originally install Apache but I would like to find out what options, where used when it was installed. Is there any way to find out. I don't use any gui, just the command shell.

You can always find out which build options were used with a slackware package by looking at the slackbuild build script. The one for apache on 12.1 is here:

Was it installed from a Slackware package? If so, you can read the SlackBuild script that you can find in the package (or on any Slackware mirror). Also, check the man page for the Apache executable, because it may have an option to tell you what options it was built with.

thanks for replys. Actually it is slackware 12.0 and looks to be installed as a package, because I have /etc/httpd directory.
