Description Tim Jackson 2006-02-27 16:50:07 UTC
PHP binary modules that are compiled against PHP will break and need recompiling
when the PHP internal API version changes.

Clearly this dependency ought to be encoded in the RPM database to avoid
unexpected breakage of apps. Therefore the Core PHP package should have a
Provide of php(API), php-api or something similar with a version number
appropriate to the API that it contains. e.g.:

Provides: php(API) = 20020918

Bug #170131 and http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?t=113745441400005 have references
to this problem.

Good idea.  "php-api = <integer>" added for 5.1.2-5.

Comment 2 Tim Jackson 2006-05-23 17:40:19 UTC
on reflection this should probably have been:

php-devel Provides php-api

and

php Provides php-abi

No doubt someone will moan about the API/ABI thing at some point :)

(actually, come to think of it, php-devel doesn't Provide anything...maybe
that's a new bug)
