[Solved] make error on PI Bullseye for lighty 1.4.73

Added by thomas about 1 month ago

hi team,

i am trying to install (according to your documentation) lighty 1.4.73 as from the PI package manager it installes lighty 1.4.58.

i am running in to the following error: make complaints it does not find pcre2-8!
i have checkd my pcre2 location (see picture) and it holds only a "pcre2-8.a" file.

how can i get autogen / make to consider the pcre2-8.a reference?

cheers & thanks in advance for any hint(s) % help

hi guys,

seems that i found out myself...
i needed to download the source pcre2-10.35 and compile it. the re-install lighttpd.
at least your make was no longer complaining...
and best of all: lighttpd -p -f /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf no longer comes up with a "error message that it can´t read the regex expressions

sorry, for bothering you ...
cheers

Glad you figured it out. The INSTALL file at the top of the source tree contains some hints.

InstallFromSource contains instructions for how to build a .deb.

good morning,

which i followers already in the first instance (compile failure). plus, that i found a reference on the internet for a .deb package for lighttpd devel, which i installed as well (still failure).

maybe i didn't read too well or misunderstood....

anyway, if i am allowed to do a proposal:
it should be more clearly stated / mentioned in your guidance, that pcre2 needs to be compiled first as your configure option is setting pcre as default to compile with.

adding a "prerequisites section" explaining the why (regex to work) and maybe providing the url to the pcre github page (https://github.com/PCRE2Project/pcre2).

thanks a lot in advance for your kind consideration.
cheers
