Re: Bug#269757: apache-common: missing .info for mod_macro.so error during libapache-mod-php4 setup

Please check /usr/lib/apache/1.3/ for any mod_macro.so and move them
somewhere. In any case that is a warning and not an error. It has been
converted as such, a long time ago.
I suspected this was a built-in module, whatever the jargon is. This
workaround you've mentioned seems to have solved it; I checked after a
restart and the module still seems to be listed in apache's list. Time
to see now if anything breaks. :)
Perhaps. I guess now it's a case of trying to figure out who/what the
heck installed the file in the first place? That raises a whole bunch of
possibilities to me (though apache would be the prime -- though not the
only -- suspect for me at this stage).
I get the same error message when installing the latest apache 1.3.31-4
sarge package, *however* an error isn't reported by apache's setup. But as
per above libapache-mod-php4 does, so setup doesn't complete.
This is perhaps another bug related to php4 and i can't see why apache is
at fault. In anycase the php4 maintainer reads the list.
Again, thanks for your answer.
