Came across your (old) post regarding how to patch Apache 2.2.6 to build correctly on a 64 bit system to avoid the /usr/lib/ could not read symbols: File in wrong format make error, with a patch which I guess you wrote.

I have RedHat 5.4 64 bit, and need to specifically use Apache 2.2.6. Your patch fixes the build error, so firstly thanks for that. Lots of people seem to have this issue, but the official fix seems to be for an older version of apache than 2.2.6, and some people suggest it cannot be directly applied for later versions: Not sure why Apache didn't fix this long before 2.2.6?

Anyway, my question is how "big" and well tested is your patch? Is it a little bug fix, or could it affect the 2.2.6 build majorly?

Sorry for the direct question, but your post is the only valid one on the NET!!

Firstly, your plugin has been really useful! thanks so much for taking the time to create it.

Secondly, I made a few modifications to your plugin and thought you might be interested in...

I have been filling the contents of the dropdowns dynamically using PHP/MySQL queries. I came across the need to send the value of another dropdown to make more advanced queries so I added a new parameter. The function now looks like this...

function( target, url, settings, parent )

the idea is you put the id of element you want to pass through and it sends the value using this line.

settings.parameters._parent = $(parent).val();

You can then access it using "$_GET[_parent]'"

The link is here

Feel free to use it anyway you want.

Hi. Thanks for your useful chainedSelects jQuery plugin. In my current project we unfortunately can have two versions of jQuery on the same page. To support this I have made some small changes to chainedSelects to capture the jQuery variable when the plugin is declared. I have also replaced eval by an explicit json dataType on the get/post calls. Are you interested in these changes or is there a sensible location where I can publish them? Thanks.
