Suse 10 64 bit apache2 sorry?


Sorry, for cross posting as I was in Mandrake and this was meant for SuSE, so I have copied over hear. So here it is in the correct distro, but maybe it will help Mandrake as well.

I am still trying to get apache working on the latest distro's.

Again, Suse 10 beta 3 does not work with apache2 on 64 bit machines - amd 64's.

Suse 10 b3 has left out the apache-mod_php and I assume php must be the problem for all distro's on 64 bit machines.

Has anyone got any info on this and when will SuSe have the 64 bit apache2 working with php?

It has been three month's now since the 64bit code has worked on the 64 bit distro's of the major players, both Suse 9.3 and 10 beta3 and Mdk 10.2 are ignoring the problem.

It has become glaring that linux is not being supported in the 64 bit apache2 -the major website app.

Anyone, got the apache 2 working on amd 64, (x86-64) on versions after SuSe9.1 and Mdk 10.1?

At least someone should say what the problem is as all the latest apache2 needs help from these distro's as even the latest apache source code will not compile on either distro.

Apart from Wireless this is getting to be a nuisance and does not help Linux.

No best the SuSe 10 works on the x86_64, this and Mandrake 10.1, but not the 10.2 work. I only test with Apache 2, mysql and php. I think the problem was in the apache 2 x86_64 code, but it appears to have been fixed now in the latest apache release.

You can use SuSE 9.1 that appeared to work but on two different types of boards froze after a time and I wasn't sure it was the webserver, but it's dated now. 9.2 and 9.3 both had problems they froze when they had a web access, but not on the localhost on the local lan an external web access froze the machine.

I have yet to fully check out Fedora 4 x86_64 on this but it appears to work OK.

I posted in the last 6 months the release of apache 2.0 x86_64, that caused the problem on Suse and Mandrake forums.

So you are saying:
  • To run 64-bit SuSE, get SuSE 10. (My client doesn't care about Mandr*.)
  • You never checked any 1.3.x apache.
I see news items on Apache HTTP Server Project about Apache 2.0.55 & Apache 2.1.8-beta, which of these works/doesn't work w/ 64-bit SuSE?

Yes, it is the only one that full LAMP works on however, it still has frozen sometimes on my machines, just as 9.1 did I have not yet found out why this is happening only with SuSE.

Spec board Gigabyte dual bios K8NNXP nForce 3 chipset Limited edition and the normal edition boards, sata drives, amd 64 3200, 1 gig 400 DDR 400, AGP8X various video cards all found and run though SuSE never seems to get the offset right on any of the boards.

I did not test it on apache 1.3, as I stopped using that due to it's alleged security flaws about the time of Redhat 8.1.

Will be interested if you do manage to get 1.3 to work as I do not believe that apache has made this to run on x86_64. Check out apache.org for their x86_64 code versions. This follows for mod ssl, mysql php, module php4.

If you want to try this see php mysql web development, Luke Welling and Laura Thompson by SAMS ISBN 0-672-31784-2
See section installing PHP 4 and Mysql on apache 1.3.

PS: the https on SuSE is a pain to set up as well.
