Description: ------------ Users with very old PEAR versions are unable to follow the PEAR upgrade instructions on the 1/3/08 news item announcing the XML-RPC service shutdown, due to two issues: - console_getopt current (v1.2.3) has only v2 package.xml, which older pear installer can't read - upgrade to pear-1.4.3 requires at least pear-1.3.3 already installed, and some users' versions are older than that Helping a user on #pear IRC showed that the following instructions will succeed for a PEAR version starting at 1.3.2: - pear upgrade --force - pear upgrade --force (_IF_ your existing version is older than 1.3.3) - pear upgrade --force - pear upgrade PEAR

(wrong package selection corrected) I also wanted to report the first issue (-1.2.2 suffix for Console_GetOpt), but was waiting for feedback from the user that reported the problem with the instructions from the website.

Perhaps it's best to tell people to use the go-pear package instead, seems to fix most things instantly.

This bug has been fixed in CVS. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the website, the change should be live shortly. Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release. Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.
