One Step Away From SlashOS X

posted by Krow on 12:47 AM April 30th, 2002   Printer-friendly   Email story

Allright, I've wasted almost two days cpanning and make installing and I've got slash installed on Mac OS X 10.1.4.

The biggest problem I ran into was compiling expat for XML::Parser. Finally, I just ended up downloading the expat binaries via Fink.

I installed the site and slash created all of its tables (lotsa tables).

Now for the bummer...When I start httpd I get the error:

dyld: /usr/sbin/httpd multiple definitions of symbol _ApacheRequest___parse
/Library/Perl/darwin/auto/Apache/Cookie/Cookie.bu ndle definition of _ApacheRequest___parse
/Library/Perl/darwin/auto/Apache/Request/Request. bundle definition of _ApacheRequest___parse
/usr/sbin/apachectl start: httpd could not be started

Wow...upon doing a little googling on the subject I discovered the conflicting symbols of Apache::Cookie and Apache::Request is a problem that has not yet been fully resolved on OS X.

Mostly looks like a libapreq problem, although it seems to install fine.

Upon digging through /Library/Perl/darwin/Apache/ I came across this gloomy statement:

=head1 BUGS

=item Reportedly does not run (linking problem?) on Apple's OSX

    Why waste a Mac running Slash? Go get a cheap PC and install Linux or FreeBSD on it.

    I'd much rather USE a mac than have it sit there serving pages.

      pudge develops slash on MacOS classic under MacPerl, if I understand correctly.


    • Why not? If someone wants to port Slash to another platform, more power to them. I look forward to seeing the announcement of a Slash site run on an Amiga or an old Atari/Commidore/etc ;)

      Sure, installing it on Red Hat with Mysql using RPMs is the easiest way, but some people just enjoy rolling their own..


      -- [], proudly running Slash since 1/28/2002.

  • I used to be able to get this, but I don't remember the configuration options. Could you please post them?
