RE: [BULK] Re: apt problem with libapache-mod-perl

Thanks Adam, that did the trick.

I should have been able to think of this myself.  Mind block due to frustration I guess, and too much dependance on apt...

You could bypass apt completely and just "dpkg -i whateverftpd.deb", if
youreally want to.

See /usr/lib/apache/1.3/*.info as examples.  Here's the one for php4:
LoadModule: php4_module /usr/lib/apache/1.3/libphp4.so
Description: Support for the PHP4 HTML-embedded scripting language

Basically, you need a (correct) LoadModule line and a Description,
listing the Directives that a module provides used to be critical to how
apacheconfig worked, but now it's just a nice reference and we don't
directly require it.
