Description: ------------ I've compiled PHP 4.4.2 --with-pear everything compiled fine. However, when I try to use the pear command such as (pear install <package name>) I get the below error message. Any idea how to best resolve this issue? Warning: main(Console/Getopt.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in System.php on line 27 Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required 'Console/Getopt.php' (include_path='/usr/local/apache2/php/lib/php') in /usr/local/apache2/php/lib/php/System.php on line 27

"make install > php_make_install_2_stdout.txt some files seem to be corrupt..." Which files? Please try using the snapshots available at

this may in fact be related to the global copyright update problem - PHP 4.4.2 has corrupted tar archives (internal files had their copyright updated, which corrupted them) making installation fail. This is fully fixed in PHP 4.4.3, and should be fixed in snapshots. However, to fix with the existing install, your solution is to download: verify that PEAR.php is in /usr/local/lib/php with: $ slocate PEAR.php /usr/local/lib/php/PEAR.php ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ you should see this If not, substitute the path you see above the^^^ for "/usr/local/lib/php" in these instructions. and extract Console/Getopt.php, put it in /usr/local/lib/php/Console/Getopt.php extract Archive/Tar.php, put it in /usr/local/lib/php/Archive/Tar.php then, run "pear upgrade PEAR Console_Getopt Archive_Tar" and it should have everything up to date

thanks for the detailed answer! got it working this way: ./configure --without-pear ... make make install and then a manual pear install to /usr/local/lib/php (just had to help the installer with some dirs..) works fine.
