Re: Install extension curl with php on slackware linux

My system was setup from the original CD's where all you do is select the
packages you want. Configure/makefile was not included as one of the files
loaded onto my hard drive. I cant find it on the CD either.

There is another concern if I do a rebuild. I have been using the system for a
long time with many changes over the years. I dont know the exact
configuration of PHP. How do I make sure that when I run configure that the
only change is adding curl without affecting or forgetting any othe option.
This is why I perfer to make the changes manually if possible.
