I built 1.0 from source with dsbuild, on my RHEL4 laptop, and it
worked for me (tm). The admin console is really fast now with apache,
compared to how it performed with the previous backend ns-httpd. I
mean to say that it is a major performance improvement. This is the
first time IMO that the admin console is actually "usable".
Note that 1.0 is not yet fully baked - that's why we dropped the
download links. So if it works for you, that's great. If not, we'd
really like to find out how/where it doesn't work.
I ran into one small hiccup while the admin server was building,
where it refused to build with jdk1.5.0.
What problems did you see?
Dropping back to 1.4.2 solved the problem. Actually, I keep both of
them in /usr/java, and just move the jdk symlink back and forth as
needed. JAVA_HOME is set to /usr/java/jdk.
Note that you need httpd and httpd-devel packages on a RHEL/FC
machine before 1.0 will build with dsbuild, since apxs is required for
