I've built a spec file to turn the Webware 0.8 distribution into a
Red Hat RPM (tested on 8.0 and 9). Currently all this does is package
the tarball into an RPM after applying a "patch" to set the path to
apxs correctly (for Red Hat at least). Once installed, it builds=20
wkcgi and mod_webkit.so and installs them. This does require that
you have the http-devel package installed on the target box.
Personally, I'd like to see the Webware distribution follow a
more standard pattern - you untar it, build some stuff and install
it. Currently, this last step is missing - its "installed" wherever
you dropped it. How hard would it be to write a distutils setup.py
for Webware (I've never done it so I don't know)? This would avoid
the need to have httpd-devel on the target system at least ...
If anyone wants the spec file, let me know.
