Googling around this ng I found someone with a similar problem who solved it
with ...
# pear install archive_tar
# pear install console_getopt
# pear install xml_rpc
# pear install pear
# pear install db
so I tried that but the # pear install pear responded with ...

.................................................. ........done: 276,978 bytes

I've googled around a fair bit but I can't find a solution.
Can anyone help me please.

try:

Ok so then ...

No release with state equal to: 'stable' found for 'PEAR_Frontend_Gtk'
