Description Graham Leggett 2006-02-20 03:45:17 EST
After building php from scratch, an attempt is made to install it:

error: Failed dependencies:
        php-pear is needed by php-5.1.2-4.3.i386

An attempt is made to build php-pear-1.4.6-1.src.rpm, but this depends on php:

[root@chandler rpms]# rpmbuild --rebuild php-pear-1.4.6-1.src.rpm 
Installing php-pear-1.4.6-1.src.rpm
error: Failed build dependencies:
        php >= 5.1.0-1 is needed by php-pear-1.4.6-1.noarch

The workaround is to install php with --nodeps, then build and install php-pear.

php must require php-pear to prevent upgrades from breaking.  You'll have to
install prebuilt RPMs to avoid this.
