Where the heck is apache src on RH7.1?

Hi all,

I'm trying to install a new and nonstandard module to the apache configuration. The module is "mod_video", and the idea is that I can port directly from bttv video signal to apache server.....yeah baby, direct video feeds from my home computer.....

Problem is.....I can't seem to find the source directory for apache! I've successfully gotten http, ftp and bttv all working, built my own kernel too, so I'm not entirely clueless. Perhaps this is staring me in the face, but I can't seem to find the source directory for apache.

Anyone know? Does the source get installed normally with RH 7.1? I've used the Gnome search tool extensivly.....anything *apache* or *httpd*....even checked out all of the *Makefile*'s luck......

well the source wouldn't be installed by default, why do you assume it would be? it's presumably on teh second rh71 cd in the SRPMS directory. if not, get teh newest source off the net

OK Acid.....I had that one coming!

Yeah....come to think of it, there is no reason to expect that the sources would be included by default.....I just got lucky with the kernel and in my mind decided that everything should be installed too.....

After work, I had a chance to install the SRPMS for apache. Found them alright on the source disk.....unpacked them without problem......but I'm now in a kind of uncharted territory......

Where to put them...and more important, where to build/install them.......

Here's what I can tell so far.....

configuration stuff is located in /etc/httpd/....there are also links from that directory into other source directories and module directories......

but there is simply no "/usr/src/apache_1.3.19/" directory.......not a problem, I can create one....

Looking for the configuration and makefiles too....that's not a problem, because there are templates included with the apache distribution that I can simply edit....there are even "special" configurations listed....callable from the "./config --option" line for distributions like SuSE and RH6.?......

Here's my question.....If I'm a gonna build one there someplace standard that I should put it? How do I maintain the file arrangement that I've got out of the box? Is there a way to map all of this out before I build it again?
