Ok, so those who were on IRC this morning know: I am completely building out a LAMPP server on an old pentium 2 machine. The goal of it is doing the administration of radio meteor observations (http://turkey.fvdh.net/wgra for some examples).
Yesterday i desperatly tried to get a working debian, but for some weird reason i couldn't ./configure anything.

This morning i gave vector a try. I installed 5.8 std but skipped the gui, and all the X11 content. I first missed 2 or 3 libs to start samba (? this is weird... the samba that came with the installer required a higher libcurl then came shipped with the system). Then I tried mysql again, but got the same error again. After some tests this appeared to be windows uncompression fault. After MySQL came apache, and then php.

I wasn't really happy to go into a compilation of PHP. I remember from the debian machine we have in our home that compiling php took me hours because i had to install every single depency (for some dark reason it never wanted to use the libs that were on the system). Now I would have to do the same hell again on a Pentium 2 processor

Currently I am in shock. I typed the whole configure crap, and the configure process hasn't been interrupted one time. The pc is now going through the make.

conclusion: Vector > Debian depencies

Maybe you have some good reason for compiling everything, but why not install LAMPP from www.apachefriends.org?
you have it working in a wink. Even I can do it, and that's something!

I have installed AMPP on Debian a couple of times. Using apt-get, it was just a matter of minutes.

i like compiling everything myself (since i really do want to pick what i want and what not.) I don't really see the problem in that. I even put the effort to make it working when its doing idiotic. It's just the fact that this distro keeps suprizing me in it's completeness. eventhough it has no complete organisation behind, it makes a easier to use distro

@ Xampp, used that before. Very easy until you actually gotta make changes. the configuration seemed to be a mess to me

I've seen your hand-tuned httpd setup, and it was good. Smiley
