@Nowaker: Thanks for the hint, fixed.

It's hard to discover this package. Searching for ab returns too many matches and yay errors out. Searching for apache returns too many matches for the results to be any useful. yay -Ss apache | grep -C 1 ab is still not good enough given the prevalence of letters "ab" in speech and writing. Please kindly modify the package description to let folks find ab easier:

-Useful Apache tools - htdigest, htpasswd, ab, htdbm
+Useful Apache tools - htdigest, htpasswd, ab (Apache Benchmark), htdbm

@axolotl: gcc is in base-devel, which is an implicit makedepends of all packages built with makepkg (e.g. AUR packages). See

arnottcr commented on 2021-03-25 20:28

you appear to be missing a makedepends on gcc

Httpd version 2.4.41 is outdated. Bump it to 2.4.43, please.

@cyounkins: the Openssl patch was needed for openssl 1.1.1 which was in the repos before apache supported it. Instead of holding the old version (as the main repo did) i included this patch. When bumping the version it was not needed and I thus just commented it for now. Will be removed in the next update.

What is the OpenSSL patch, and why is it disabled?

@fordprefect, that's ARM 64 bit.

fordprefect commented on 2017-10-05 20:19

@aperion: what architecture is that? officially supported is 'i686' and 'x86_64', sometime 'armvX' is also used (for compatibility with ALARM), but i have never encountered 'aarch64'.
