i installed it as usual with the commands listed on the apachefriends website.
but when i go to start it, apache doesn't start and returns this error:
Starting XAMPP for Linux 1.4.12
XAMPP: Starting Apache with SSL (and PHP5)
XAMPP: Error 139! Couldn't start Apache!
XAMPP: Starting diagnose...
XAMPP: Sorry, I've no idea what's going wrong.
XAMPP: Please contact our forum http://community.apachefriends.org/f/
XAMPP: Starting MySQL...
XAMPP: Starting ProFTPD...
XAMPP for Linux started.
so it looks like everything starts except apache. the contents of the /opt/lampp/logs/apachestart.log are
/opt/lampp/bin/apachectl: line 100: 371 Segmentation fault $HTTPD $ARGV
if anyone can help me i would be very happy
Edit:: I think the problem may be, i was running damn small linux in qemu.
the XAMPPonCD does not work for me in qemu either.
