.............................done: 124,807 bytes
requires package `PEAR' >= 1.0b1
DB: Dependencies failed

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 ...

Starting to download PEAR-1.4.4.tgz (276,978 bytes)
.................................................. ........done: 276,978 bytes
requires package `PEAR' >= 1.3.3
PEAR: Dependencies failed

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

try:
pear install -a db

maybe you'll have to update PEAR before
pear install -a -f pear

Ok so then ...

# pear install -a PEAR_Frontend_Gtk
No release with state equal to: 'stable' found for 'PEAR_Frontend_Gtk'
