Cc processes lingering

Cc processes lingering

Cc processes lingering


New to this. I am trying to go through the configure, make, make install process with 2.4.26. trying to compile 64 bit on Solaris 11.

I set up zlib, pcre and drop apr and apr-util in the httpd extract and use the included apr option.

When I run a configure or make (on anything- zlib, pcre, httpd), it appears to complete on the command line but if I check the processes there are a bunch of cc processes. They do eventually go away but take forever to go away- hours some times. Htttpd has the largest number of lingering cc processes and it takes the longest. The processes are using CPU.

Is this what is supposed to happen? I don't see any errors. But, it just seems very weird. Since I am new I am afraid I may have done something wrong and don't realize it.

RE: Cc processes lingering

I've never built Apache on Solaris, so it may be acting differently from what I'm used to, but I don't recall processes running after the make completes. BUT, those "cc" processes are the C compiler. I would wait till they all complete before doing the "make install".

Here's roughly the commands I use to build Apache...


export CFLAGS="-O2"
./configure --prefix=/app/apache --plus-whatever-other-options-you-want
make clean
make install 

RE: Cc processes lingering

Thanks for the response. This one seems a little more complicated because of the 64 bit. This is what I am doing.
