Description famoushz 2012-09-18 08:50:35 UTC
I downloaded the apache 2.4.3 release, and trying to build it on RH3 X64, 

If I build apache 2.4.3 release source file in RH3 X64,  the configure, make ,make install runs normally without any errors, but when I tried to start apache control binary , it always complains below issue:

[Fri Sep 14 05:39:51.129512 2012] [mpm_event:crit] [pid 13940:tid 182908008832] (70023)This function has not been implemented on this platform: AH00495: Couldn't create a Thread Safe Pollset. Is it supported on your platform?Also check system or user limits!
[Fri Sep 14 05:39:51.129591 2012] [:emerg] [pid 13940:tid 182908008832] AH00017: Pre-configuration failed, exiting

but I could build successfully on RH4, RH5 X64, here is the configure command I used.

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache --with-pcre=/usr/local/pcre --enable-proxy --enable-proxy-http --enable-proxy-balancer --enable-dav --enable-rewrite --enable-so --enable-http --enable-expires --enable-headers --enable-mods=deflate_module --with-susexec --disable-info --without-berkeley-db --enable-dav=shared --enable-dav-lock=shared --with-included-apr --enable-cache --enable-cache=shared --enable-disk-cache --enable-disk-cache=shared --with-expat=builtin --without-pgsql

all the library should be in place, or the configure should be failed,make,make install either. so I believe it is a bug.

I guess you have the apr/apr-util libraries shipped with RH3 installed on the build machine. If yes, you could try to uninstall these libs when building httpd as a workaround.

This is fixed by using unpacking the httpd-2.4.X-deps tarball and passing --with-included-apr to configure.
