View Full Version : Updating Apache on SLES 10

Hi,

Sometime back, about a year and a half ago, I was able to find the
Apache2 RPMs for version 2.2.14 and upgrade Apache on my SLES 10 system.
Well, actually it's a product we sell that runs on SLES 10 that has both
user and kernel code, so upgrading isn't "simple"...

Now, due to security issues found at a customer site, I was hoping to
do that again. But the only RPMs I've been able to find so far are for
Apache2 2.2.21 which has additional requirements and won't install
without upgrading lots of stuff. Does anyone know where I can find RPMs
for the versions between 2.2.14 and 2.2.21? I'd like to get as far as I
can (the actual security hole I must cover was fixed in Apache 2.2.15)
without having to upgrade SLES.

And, yes, I know that Apache security is a moving target, and that
upgrading to anything less than the current version will mean having to
do this again at some point, but I was hoping to avoid an OS upgrade at
this time. We will have to consider upgrading to SLES 11, etc., but I
was hoping to hold off on that for a while...

Thanks,

Rob

Hi Malcolm,

Oddly, when I looked a couple of weeks ago I found different versions,
so I went ahead and downloaded the ones I found today. But I still end
up with the same problem. If I try to upgrade Apache I need libapr,
which requires GLIBC 2.10 and trying to upgrade that fails because of
missed dependencies (primarily /sbin/ldconfig and libcrypt). In
addition, the currently installed versions of the missing dependencies
are listed as needed by a whole bunch of installed RPMs...

Is there anybody else that's running SLES 10 SP3? And, if so, are you
running Apache? And which version of Apache are you running?

Thanks,

Rob
