installed php-4.3.3RC1 on Suse 8.2

P: n/a
I have installed php-4.3.3RC1 on Suse 8.2, and everything went fine
even the make install, but I do not see the new version in yast2
software packages, it still has the old version 4.3.1

any ideas ? is there another step I need to take, how do I check what
is really installed ?

ps apache is 2.0.46 and mysql is 4.1.0

How did you install your newer version of PHP? Was it an RPM file or did
you compile your own.

My guess is that you compiled your own (using configure, make, make install)
which will not change the database of installed software that yast or yast2
uses. (I believe 'yast' and 'yast2' uses 'rpm' for software version
control).

I don't know if this is going to be messy now, however what I would have
done is first gone to yast and uninstalled whatever version of PHP you had
installed... then, I would have installed your newer version. I fear that
if you go to yast now, and attempt to uninstall PHP it might also uninstall
various dependancies that your newer version requires...

I use SuSE 7.1 and I installed my own version of Apache and PHP and ignored
yast for this (though I do use yast for pretty much everything else).

I hope the above gives you some food for thought...


I compiled my own, I have found a command php -v it tells me I have
the version I want installed, which means that yast doesnt know about
it, which is annoying but I can live with it
