well sorry about that, it worked when i changed it to:
./configure --with-apxs=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs --with-xml --with-curl
--with-swf=/usr/local/flash --enable-ftp --with-gd=/usr --with-jpeg-dir=/usr/local
--with-xpm-dir=/usr/X11R6 --with-png-dir=/usr --with-imap
--with-ming=/usr/src/ming-0.2a --enable-magic-quotes --with-mysql --enable-safe-mode
--enable-track-vars --with-ttf --enable-versioning --with-zlib
...however, now i ran into another problem: Ming!
The source is located /usr/src/ming-0.2a
and the installed files are located:
but neither of these 3 is accepted in the configure line.
Or can i just leave it in the configure line and then just add the php_ming.so file,
copy it into the extension dir and add it to php.ini file?
