Description Greg Swallow 2006-12-03 13:06:50 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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. 'pear list' displays the installed pear modules
Actual results:
as described in the description

Expected results:
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.

Additional info:
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.
