Squid on Novell SUSE Linux
Pre-Built Binary Packages
- what exactly are the available versions on SLES? both official and semi-official
Bug Reporting: https://bugzilla.novell.com/buglist.cgi?quicksearch=squid
There is just one known problem. The Linux system layout differs markedly from the Squid defaults. The following ./configure options are needed to install Squid into the Linux structure properly:
--prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc/squid --bindir=/usr/sbin --sbindir=/usr/sbin --localstatedir=/var --libexecdir=/usr/sbin --datadir=/usr/share/squid
LDAP support fails to build
Seen on Squid-3.1 and older. The build appears to start well then breaks with strange compile errors on the LDAP helpers. Usually mentioning missing variable definitions or miss-placed ) brackets.
You just have to install the openldap2-devel package from the SLES11-SP1-SDK-DVD:
zypper install openldap2-devel
Squid-3.2 does much better support detection and should present you with a useful message about LDAP support files not being found.
