Help installing Apache2::ASP on Debian Etch

I have tried to install mod_perl2, Apache2::request and Apache2::ASP on Debian Etch with Apache2.
I've used CPAN and tried manually doing them from source files.

I'm new to unix and I cannot find a single guide anywhere that works.

I have Apache2 running and would like to support ASP pages. ASPX is also a plus but I really need ASP.

Can someone help me?

As far as I know you need MONO to get ASP support for Linux. Check the following Link, but install it from the debian repositories as it should be included there as far as I know.

ITReg,

Following up on rindi's advice, I've used the following for Apache and Apache2, respectively.


libapache-mod-mono      - Run ASP.NET Pages on UNIX with Apache and Mono                    
libapache2-mod-mono    - Run ASP.NET Pages on UNIX with Apache 2 and Mono

Install it like this (apt-get)
apt-get install libapache-mod-mono
apt-get install libapache2-mod-mono

or

aptitude install  libapache-mod-mono
aptitude install  libapache2-mod-mono


Additonally, the following search has quite a few Mono related packages, including a stand alone web server.

aptitude search mono

I have done the  libapache2-mod-mono but it only works with aspx files. I cannot get it to do normal ASP files.

I went to the http://www.mono-project.com/Main_Page site but it shows Red Hat as being discontinued.  Isnt Debian part of Red Hat or which one should I choose for Debian? It's not listed as a supported OS.

Thanks,

Lannie

Debian and Redhat are completely different Linux distro's. Redhat uses Yum and rpm for it's packaging, and Debian uses apt-get. Redhat is commercial, and Debian is completely open source and community based. Redhat launched Fedora-Core, which is opensource and community based, and it builds it's redhat versions based on the Fedora-Core distros.
