Installing Passenger 2.1.2 on CentOS 5.2
We’re running CentOS 5.2 on our staging server.
[root@rails-staging0 ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release CentOS release 5.2 (Final)
The passenger gem installed OK but when I ran passenger-install-apache2-module I got the following error.
... other lines snipped ... /usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/libaprutil-1.so when searching for -laprutil-1 /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -laprutil-1 collect2: ld returned 1 exit status rake aborted! Command failed with status (1): [g++ -shared SystemTime.o Utils.o Bucket.o ...] /var/ruby-enterprise-1.8.6-20080810/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/passenger-2.1.2/Rakefile:157 (See full trace by running task with --trace) -------------------------------------------- It looks like something went wrong
Searching for this error didn’t yield any definite fixes but a couple of posts mentioned re-installing the apr-devel packages. I tried apr-devel to begin with but was told that it was already up-to-date.
[root@rails-staging0 ~]# yum install apr-devel ... other lines snipped ... Nothing to do
I can’t remember why but I tried apr-util-devel next which did result in the package being installed.
[root@rails-staging0 ~]# yum install apr-util-devel ... other lines snipped ... Installed: apr-util-devel.x86_64 0:1.2.7-7.el5 Complete!
With this package re-installed I was able to go ahead and install the passenger apache module (i.e. passenger-install-apache2-module succeeded).
One slightly interesting/odd thing was that yum reported that the same version (1.2.7-7.el5) of apr-util-dev was already installed. The only difference after the re-install was that its status changed from ‘base’ to ‘installed’.
# before the re-install [root@rails-staging0 ~]# yum list | grep apr-util-devel apr-util-devel.x86_64 1.2.7-7.el5 base # after the re-install [root@rails-staging0 ~]# yum list | grep apr-util-devel apr-util-devel.x86_64 1.2.7-7.el5 installed
