Re: [Fedora-php-devel-list] Pear in EL-4

The actual template for pear extension Requires pear >= 1:1.4.9-1.2

Previous pear were really buggy for packaging.
A lot of stuff has been made to get this template.

It's arch because build from the php SRPM, but really noarch.

This php-pear-1.4.11 is probably provided to works with php-5.1.6 also
in this repo.

RHEL also provides this in the "Red Hat Web Application Stack" channel
(to be verified, i only see php-5.1.2 and pear-1.4.6 on the beta
channel, but i know php-5.1.6 is available as we use it in my company)
but without support AFAIK.

I don't think update from arch to noarch is supported in EL4 (i remember
the problem on FC3 which requires a special yum configuration)

For the RPM i maintained, i choose to push them only on EL5,
But of course, i'm ok to investigated on this issue.

I will prefer to say php-pear extensions are provided for php-5.1.6 /
pear-1.4.11 (RH Web. App Stack or CentOS Plus)
