Bug Description

Binary package hint: nginx

nginx version: nginx/0.6.32

Excerpt from:

Before serving a file from disk to a gzip-enabled client, this module will look for a precompressed file in the same location that ends in ".gz". The purpose is to avoid compressing the same file each time it is requested.

ngx_http_gzip_static_module was introduced in nginx 0.6.24. You must enable support at compile time:

./configure --with-http_gzip_static_module

ProblemType: Bug
Architecture: i386
DistroRelease: Ubuntu 8.10
NonfreeKernelModules: nvidia
Package: nginx 0.6.32-3ubuntu1
SourcePackage: nginx
Uname: Linux 2.6.27-11-server i686

Thank you for your bug report and helping to make Ubuntu better.
This makes sense, but is a new feature and therefore not appropriate for Jaunty currently. I'm assigning the "later" milestone, so that it gets handled for Karmic.

Changed in nginx:
importance: Undecided → Wishlist
milestone: none → later
status: New → Triaged

Now that jaunty is out, is it possible to get this into karmic and then jaunty backports? or better yet, latest nginx 0.7.x, with gzip_static enabled.
