Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 521103
default zikula setup will fail
Last modified: 2010-11-30 20:09:10 EST
Description of problem: default web install of zikula will lead to the following error message:
Non critical error
An unknown error has occured. The following error message was returned by the system
Function split() is deprecated
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. have mysql and zikula
2. run instll.php
3. get error message
Expected results: have a running instance of zikula.
Additional info: it is a php 5.3 bug. split() is deprecated and apparently they are working on this upstream but currently Fedora 12 ships without a useable Zikula
Which version have you tested on?
Please check out 1.1.2 which is currently in updates-testing. I see that drak opened a ticket, but I don't see a currently active ticket, and many bugfixes were committed to 1.1.2.
This is the version I have been using:
Name : zikula
Arch : noarch
Version : 1.1.2
Release : 3.fc12
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
The function 'split' has been deprecated in PHP 5.3.0:
One option is to use PHP 5.2.10 as recommended in:
Reported in this zikula ticket: http://code.zikula.org/core/ticket/1145
Fixed in version: 1.3.0 (not released yet)

Sorry, it looks that already works in zikula 1.2.0 as stated in the ticket:
"1.2.0 will run without errors under PHP 5.3.0, remaining work should be done on 2.0 only."

Currently Fedora version is at 1.1.2 and needs to be updated to 1.2 to fix broken deps, see: bug #511998 comment #16 onwards.
Any progress on packaging 1.2.2 version? Currently one of broken dependency in F-13 is zikula-module-menutree which already require zikula 1.2
Yes, please fix this ASAP, it's causing broken deps in rawhide and F-13, rel-eng has been trying to rebuild this in vain to fix broken deps too:
I'm sure you've been getting nagmail about fixing this, please don't ignore it, it's there for a purpose.

There is a problem with 1.2.x in that upstream has bundled and forked php-gettext and made significant changes to that library. Aside from dealing with this zikula-1.2.x is ready to go.
Communication with upstream indicates that they plan to be rid of this library by 1.3 which is a couple months off. I'll take a look and see if we can rid ourselves of the split() problem.
Additionally, I am not the maintainer for zikula-module-menutree

This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '12'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
This is now resolved as 1.2.3 has been pushed to the repos.
