Problem installing PHP5 on SuSE 8.2

P: n/a
Hi all,

I've been reading through the lasts months of postings in this
(and some other) newsgroups to find a solution to my PHP problem.

The configuration I use is as follows:

- SuSE v8.2
- Apache 2.0.54
- MySQL 4.1.14
- PHP 5.0.5

Installing the first 3 parts was not a problem at all. Both
Apache and MySQL start just fine. Before I could perform a proper
'configure' of PHP I had to update libxml2, add libxml2-devel and
python but then the following command worked without any errors:

./configure --with-apxs2=/usr/local/httpd/bin/apxs

[note: the previous is, of course, a single line]

After this, I used 'make' to compile the stuff and this is where
things go wrong. The following error message is shown:

=============[ start of make-output ]============================
vpsuse:/usr/local/php # make
/bin/sh /usr/local/php/libtool --silent --preserve-dup-deps
--mode=compile gcc -Iext/standard/

make: *** [sapi/apache2handler/sapi_apache2.lo]
Error 1
=============[ end of make-output ]==============================

Now, there is indeed no os.h file in the directory
/usr/local/httpd/include but there are a number of them in
subdirectories below /usr/local/httpd/os (for various OSses).
Copying the one from the 'unix' directory does not help.

If I search for 'os.h' and 'no such file or directory' in
combination with php and such, I have seen similar error reports
but no solutions. On the other hand, I can't believe that my
combination of software is so unique, that it would give a lot of

Any suggestion where things go wrong and how to solve them?????
