it seems i have been able to bypass it by adding the static method in front of the functino declaration on line 250 of PEAR.php static function isError($data, $code = null) { if (!is_a($data, 'PEAR_Error')) { return false; } if (is_null($code)) { return true; } elseif (is_string($code)) { return $data->getMessage() == $code; } return $data->getCode() == $code; }

this fix is just temporary until a PEAR developer can verify that this is a proper fix please

danielc, i think the same modifications need to be made to pear/MDB2.php and for any one else, you also will need to update your dbwrapper where you call the MDB2::singleton or however your using MDB2 and referencing the pear library. I think i copied mine from an older version of a wrapper i was using from the DB() days before upgrading to MDB2. It must have also called it that way (PEAR::isError).

i found another file, pear/MDB2/Driver/mysqli.php, and i guess would be the same for all drivers. Am i missing something, were these files already updated and i missed a lite of updated files? I just saw that the MDB2.php file was updated. How many more files do i need to look for. should i run grep -lre 'PEAR::isError' ./* on the entire pear/MDB2 folder and replace all?

ok, im still a newb here on PEAR bugs, and i figured it out, sorry about that. i see that the link has a list of all files that were edited. Somehow i thought only one of those files was pertaining to this bug. looks like you swept through the whole package. my bad. ill leave it here, but can somebody tell me what action one would take at this point, should i just go to command line and pear update the package, or should i remove then reinstall the package, or run a patch? its not a live server, just a testing ground so its not mission critical for me if something breaks and needs fixing.

Hey Wolfdogg: The new version hasn't been released yet. It's only in the Subversion repository. You can manually update your installation with those files, if so desired. --Dan
