why you dont compile yourself??? is better and secure


when you configure the package you need to do this

./configure  xxxxxxxxxxx --enable-cache-digests --enable-delay-pools
make install

or if you need full configure

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/squid/ \
--bindir=/usr/local/sbin  --enable-delay-pools\
--sysconfdir=/usr/local/etc/squid \
--datadir=/usr/local/etc/squid \
--libexecdir=/usr/local/libexec/squid \
--localstatedir=/usr/local/squid \
--enable-removal-policies="lru heap" \
--enable-auth="basic ntlm digest" \
--enable-basic-auth-helpers="NCSA PAM YP MSNT winbind" \
--enable-digest-auth-helpers=password \
--enable-external-acl-helpers="ip_user unix_group wbinfo_group winbind_group" \
--enable-ntlm-auth-helpers="SMB winbind" \
--enable-async-io --with-pthreads \
--enable-storeio="ufs diskd null aufs" \
--enable-snmp \
--enable-ssl \
--enable-htcp \
--disable-http-violations \
--disable-ident-lookups \
--enable-useragent-log \
--enable-arp-acl \
--enable-err-languages="English " \
--enable-default-err-language="English" \

yeah, but anyone can tell me if it is an rpm , how do we do in respect with rpm. i dont want to disturb my present squid file. if any one can tell the command to check if delay pool is enabled or disabled in redhat 9
No you cant do this in a RPM. rpm is a compile package with compile options. try adding delay_pools 1 to squid.conf file but in the RPMS nobody include the delaypools. sorry but you need to install from source.
I am sure that Squid is built without delay_pool in RedHat 9. If you want to check that yourself, just uncomment delay_pool lines in your squid.conf and [re]start your squid. There will be some lines in the log file saying that delay_pool is not enabled.
