RE: [SLE] Help Installing SuSE 9 AMD64 Apache2 rpms with yast2 on SLES 8 AMD64

Thanks for the link to the apache2 info and the FAQ on Apache2. There do indeed seem to be Apache2 RPMs for United Linux 1.0 on

I have one more question. My install (with online updates) of SLES 8 for AMD64 already has the file /etc/sysconfig/apache2 for
configuring Apache2.

Is there someplace I can put the RPMs from
so that the Yast2 Install and Remove Software function will pick these up and do the additional dependency checking that it appears
to do?

Thank you again - Richard

Install at least apache2, apache2-prefork and libapr0.
