Problems with the Linux version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

*mystery* :: '/opt/lampp/lampp start' returns no message

Postby ddiller » 03. August 2007 22:55

I have a fresh install of (Gentoo) Sabayon 3.4 x86-64. I followed the instructions...

here: http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-linux.html#374
and here: http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-linux.html#377

...to the letter.

When I attempt this as root:
# /opt/lampp/lampp start

...I get a new terminal prompt. No error message, no success message, no processes under the 'nobody' user. Nothing.

Does anyone know where I could start looking around for possible answers?

Dear ddiller!

Not a mystery, just a simple bug. :(

I just released a fixed version 1.6.3b, which you can get at the usual place:


Alternatively you can also download http://www.apachefriends.org/files/linux/1.6.3a/lampp and replace /opt/lampp/lampp with this file.

Oswald: thanks!

I managed to cast aside some newbness on a small scale, and read the contents of the lampp shell script -- I commented out the check-for-32-bit-system block of code.

I presume this release will be a cleaner fix than what I came up with :lol:

Thanks again.
