Re: [rhelv5-list] php53-pear request - bug 673521



I've actually built some Pear/Pecl components with the RHEL5.6 php53  (5.3.3) 
stack installed more recently, using the SPEC meta tags to  package nicely into 
RPMs.  I prefer it over running the scripts to build  components outside of 
RPM.  But your experiences may vary.

P.S.  For the latest software requirements, have you considered RHEL6?  RHEL5 is 
over four (4) years old, based on a Fedora release even older.  I would suspect 
several, 2011+ era components that have dependencies on PHP 5.3+, Python 2.6, 
etc... will cause various issues that Red Hat won't be able to always address.

There is an existing bug report for this.
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=673521
We don't have support - can't afford the fees.

I've looked at the 5.7 release notes and nothing about php or pear
on the horizon.  This bug report is now a few months old.

This shortcoming impacts projects built on php.  For example,
it is impossible to install the current Horde Webmail software
based on Horde 4 within the pear environment provided by Redhat.

It is ridiculous we have to go 3rd party repos or compile
from source if we want updates like this very soon.

I prefer to install packages managed by a package manager.
Redhat can make it a new package as was done with php53
and then we have a way to reinstall with the older php 5.1 stuff
if there are issues.

The user list at horde suggest using the repo Les RPM de Remi
but I'd much rather not get into another dependency tree and
watch my OS start showing cracks in the foundation
a year later.
