Re: Apache 1.3.26 + Frontpage Extensions + dpkg-buildpackage

I have managed to set this up using mod-mirfak (libapache-mod-frontpage-mirfak). I think I had to hack it a bit - let me know if it doesnt work immediately.

Hi All

I am trying to install FrontPage Extensions support with Apache 1.3.26
on a Debian Woody box. I got the patch from
ftp://ftp.rtr.com/pub/fp-patch-apache_1.3.22.Z and gunzipped it. From
there on I followed the following instructions:

apt-get source apache cd apache-1.3.26/upstream/tarballs tar xvzf apache_1.3.26.tar.gz cd apache_1.3.26 patch -p1 <path_to>fp-patch-apache_1.3.22 cd <path-to-toplevel>apache-1.3.26 dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -b cd .. dpkg -i apache-common dpkg -i apache

When it came to patching the apache source I had to do patch -p1 <
/usr/src/apache/fp-patch-apache_1.3.22 because I had errors trying to
patch it with the above method. After taking care of a few dependency
problems I tried to run the dpkg-buildpackage command but I got the
following error message:

Has anyone seen anything like this before? Is there something I need to
do before I try build the package? The instructions I have been
following can be found at

Any help at all will be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
