I thought I'd recap for you all just for the archives...
I hope I tell the story in the right order, but here goes.
I am using redhat 6.2 for Sparc, by the way.
I was having db2_dba failures when I was trying to rebuild the
redhat 6.2 SRPM to install on my system. It wouldn't rebuild,
and the source wouldn't install the way it was.
A great guy named Brent gave me the tip that since I wasn't using
db2, I could add --without-db2 to my php.spec file. So I did
that and I did an "rpm -ba php.spec" from the /usr/src/redhat/SPECS
directory. Out came an RPM that I installed. It supposedly
had IMAP support, and I think it really THOUGHT it did, because
it did create /usr/lib/php3/imap.so and put all the right things
in my /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file and everything.
BUT, when I ran the "../test.php3" script, it said there was no
IMAP support. So, I added the line --with-imap to my .spec
file and did it again.
This time when I tried starting Apache, it gave me errors regarding
"gss_nt_service_name" which is related to kerberos and PHP I guess.
So, I added --without-kerberos and rebuilt the RPM one more time.
This time I tried to fire up Apache and I got more errors
regarding "gss_mech_krb5". This is more Kerberos stuff.
I hit the jackpot though when I saw someone who said that on
redhat 6.1 they had this error. Here is their comment:
"add a line "export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/kerberos/lib/libgssapi_krb5.so"
before you start the daemon in your /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd file
This helps on my system (RH6.1)."
So, I put that line in, and sure enough Apache fired up with
no problem. Then I went to test.php3 and it showed IMAP support,
and MySQL support (that's the database I chose) So, I figured I
was all set, but when I went to log in, it just timed out.
So, I restarted httpd, and mysql daemons and then it all came to
life with no problem!
I did end up recompiling my qpopper with "--enable-uw-kludge"
to get rid of an annoying message I got every time I was in and
out of webmail, but it now works!
So, Brent, thanks for your tips and support, and I just hope it
goes smoother for you folks running intel machines. I doubt people
had as much trouble on the newer platforms.
