Description Philippe Makowski 2009-05-04 21:19:18 UTC
Since Firebird will be packaged into Fedora and EPEL, it would be nice to have  Firebird module for php, as Debian and Mandriva have.

cf https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=498790

Comment 1 Remi Collet 2009-05-05 04:24:28 UTC
For EPEL, you need to contact the maintainer of "php-extras" package which provides extension for php working with libraries available in EPEL (we could'nt modify the RH php package)

@joe : any comment about adding this extension to php main package in Fedora ?

Comment 2 Joe Orton 2009-05-05 10:50:39 UTC
There's no "firebird" module shipped in the PHP tarball - there's "interbase" and there's "pdo_firebird", but, should be fine to enable either/both once the deps are there, AFAIK.

yes in PHP it is still named "interbase" but it build without problem with firebird

here how it is build in the Mandriva package
%global modname firebird
%global dirname interbase
%global soname interbase.so
%global inifile 42_%{modname}.ini

First build available in my private testing repo (php 5.3.0)
php-interbase provide interbase and pdo_firebird

@Philippe : please try it.

I will update rawhide spec after F11.

for me it seems ok
but I'm not a PHP dev

I send a mail to the firebird-php group

Comment 6 Remi Collet 2009-06-21 12:27:51 UTC
New PHP 5.2.10 rawhide build provides php-interbase (interbase and pdo_firebird extension)
