Re: [PLUG] Apache2 weird problem

Normally the dependencies in the DEB package ensure that apache2-bin gets installed along with apache2. The particular issue described in this thread could arise if /usr/sbin/apache2 was manually removed (with rm, for example) without using APT to remove the apache2-bin package that installed it in the first place. I'm not necessarily saying that's what happened, but I'm not sure how else it could have occurred.

This is part of why Gentoo uses USE flags.  :)  Though to be fair we
don't use them to control the installation of things like init.d
scripts and such (though they are used for docs).  Those are filtered
out using install masks (you can tell portage to never install
anything in /usr/share/applications, for example).

And we now return you back to your previously scheduled on-topic programming...
