Description Robert Scheck 2004-08-18 13:58:29 EDT
Description of problem:
I can't use the PHP function mime_content_type(), because PHP is 
compiled without "--with-mime-magic", that refers to the following 

"Fatal error: Call to undefined function: mime_content_type() in ..."

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible / Steps to Reproduce:
Everytime, see above.

Actual results:
Compiling PHP with the configure parameter '--with-mime-magic' would
solve this problem.

We also should set 

  mime_magic.magicfile = "/usr/share/file/magic.mime"

in the /etc/php.ini then, because Red Hat doesn't deliver the default
expected magic.mime in /usr/share/misc/.

Expected results:
PHP with '--with-mime-magic'.

Oh, I saw, that it is even more easily (so threw my other text 
above away):

And this bug is a Red Hat related bug, because magic.mime is not 
delivered to the default places where it should be. Normally mime-
magic support is enabled per default. I also didn't pass 
'%{_datadir}/magic.mime' because it's only a symbolic link, that 
maybe will go away...
Comment 2 Joe Orton 2004-08-19 09:08:22 EDT
Needs a "Requires: file" file too, presumably.  Just checking how big
this extension is before enabling.
Comment 3 Robert Scheck 2004-08-19 09:18:20 EDT
Compared without the "Requires: file" (hehe, a few bytes more), I've 
got the following result here (complete size of all (src) rpms):

9,608 MB with mime magic
9,592 MB without mime magic

also ~ 16 KB more at my build system. I think the size shouldn't be 
the problem for this (normally default) extension.

Works for me then.  Added in 4.3.8-5; thanks for the report.
