I need to recompile php on a Fedora server because I need to use the –enable-zip flag. When trying to install the devel package, I get the following message. This is after a ‘yum clean all’:
yum install php53-devel.x86_64 Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security rhel-x86_64-server-5 | 1.4 kB 00:00 rhel-x86_64-server-5/primary | 4.9 MB 00:00 rhel-x86_64-server-5 14161/14161 Setting up Install Process Resolving Dependencies --> Running transaction check ---> Package php53-devel.x86_64 0:5.3.3-13.el5_8 set to be updated --> Processing Dependency: php53 = 5.3.3-13.el5_8 for package: php53-devel --> Finished Dependency Resolution php53-devel-5.3.3-13.el5_8.x86_64 from rhel-x86_64-server-5 has depsolving problems --> Missing Dependency: php53 = 5.3.3-13.el5_8 is needed by package php53-devel-5.3.3-13.el5_8.x86_64 (rhel-x86_64-server-5) Error: Missing Dependency: php53 = 5.3.3-13.el5_8 is needed by package php53-devel-5.3.3-13.el5_8.x86_64 (rhel-x86_64-server-5) You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem You could try running: package-cleanup --problems package-cleanup --dupes rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
Output of ‘yum repolist’:
# yum repolist Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security repo id repo name status rhel-x86_64-server-5 Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 for 64-bit x86_64) enabled: 14,161 repolist: 14,161
Make sure your Red Hat subscription for this machine is active. Not having an active subscription is usually the cause of this. (If it is active, call Red Hat.)
And if you’re compiling your own version of PHP, you don’t need to do any of this.
