Am I a freak, or are there others who get a charge of compiling code?

...and please don't put the obvious answer, which is "both". :-)

Hi littleman,

The joys and often frustrations of compiling code.

Yes I enjoy compiling but prefer to be called a geek

--------------------------------------------------------

cd openssl-0.9.7a
sh config
make
cd ../mod_ssl-2.8.12-1.3.27
./configure --with-apache=../apache_1.3.27

cd ../mod_perl-1.27
perl Makefile.PL \
APACHE_SRC=../apache_1.3.27/src \
DO_HTTPD=1 \
USE_APACI=1 \
EVERYTHING=1
make
make install

cd ../apache_1.3.27
patch -p0 < fp-suexec
patch -p0 < fp-patch
SSL_BASE=../openssl-0.9.7a \
./configure \

Too old to learn any other way ;)

Don't think I have the time to do it... not to compile but to maintain and update everything that I've compiled. That's the main reason I moved from Slackware to Debian, it has a lot more precompiled packages and a nice package manager.

>>./configure --with-Apache [httpd.apache.org]=../apache_1.3.27

Using configure is totally uncool. Running configure -> make -> make test -> make install is just no fun any more. Manually figuring out the compiler flags, locations of libs, etc. and compiling and linking yourself, thatīs where the fun begins ;) ME THINKS NOT!
