i chose to build from source and, along with numerous compile warnings related to buffer sizes, after installation completed and i tried to browse, i got "404 Not Found" and i suspect it's related to this diagnostic message: /usr/local/lib/fossology/fo-postinstall: line 314: /etc/init.d/apache2: No such file or directory which represents: if /etc/init.d/apache2 status > /dev/null; then <-- 314 /etc/init.d/apache2 reload fi is this related to the fact this is a systemd-oriented distro, and that the corresponding symlink needs to go elsewhere? rday -- ======================================================================== Robert P.
