Loss of pear modules on upgrade from RHEL4 to RHEL5
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:38 EST
Description of problem:
- In RHEL4 php-pear provides Archive_Tar, Console_Getopt, DB, HTTP, Mail,
Net_SMTP, Net_Socket, PEAR, XML_Parser and XML_RPC
- In RHEL5 php-pear provides Archive_Tar, Console_Getopt, PEAR and XML_RPC
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. 'pear list' displays the installed pear modules
as described in the description
php-pear in RHEL5 should require the missing pear modules. I believe they are
all in Fedora Extras. I think for RHEL5 at least they should be part of the
distribution to make the transition smooth from RHEL4 to RHEL5.
Sorry for the late bug report. Just thought of it today.
Building the FC6 module rpms works fine, but just noting also required is php-
error: Failed dependencies:
php-pear(Auth_SASL) is needed by php-pear-Net-SMTP-1.2.8-5.noarch
Thanks for the report; it's actually intentional to ship only the minimal PEAR
installation in RHEL5 - this is mentioned in the release notes. Third-party
packages are available already which provide many PEAR modules in RPM format.
