Thread: Details for differences between build directories

  1. #1

    Cool Details for differences between build directories

    Newb question: is there a place to find the details for differences between the build directories?

    For instance, looking in /repositories/server:/php, there's an SLE_10 subdir, and a separate server_apache_SLE_10 subdir. Thinking one may just be a link to the other, I downloaded the base PHP rpm from each--different file sizes, and so obviously not the same.

    I'm needing the correct variety of PHP 5.3.2 for SLES 11 (for which there is a plain SLE_11 build dir.), but will this be an appropriate build for a "server" deployment.

    Basically, what's the difference between the builds in a directory with a prefix like 'server_apache_', and one without?

    TIA for any help rendered,
    FW

    Hi
    Download the src for each one and review the spec files and patches.
    Maybe the apache one has some extra config options? Else check the
    change log and if the maintainer is the same, contact them.

    Just a warning, installing on a system will not be supported, so if you
    have other issues, even non php5.3.2 related, you may need to remove
    before an SR or bug will be actioned.

    Thanks much, Malcolm. Good suggestion, which I applied to the SLE_10 & apache_server_SLE_10 dirs. However, all the component files were identical. So I'll try to follow up with the respective maintainers.
