Hi all,

has anyone managed to create an ebuild for the current release candidate and what about APC and MemCache integration?

Greetings from Rostock / Germany

5.3 final was out 2 days ago. The php-experimental overlay is silent, and there's no bugzilla bugs for it. Is anyone working on it?

It's there: https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=274512
Currently marked RESOLVED LATER (is this logical?) but they do say they are on the case.

Hope so - can't wait to try out some of the new stuff.

It's less than 100 hours old... if you want to talk about outdated, go find the equivalent Perl thread. :lol:

But seriously, cut the devs some slack. It's better to have something done right than something that's just "out on time".

Okay, now it's a month and a half old and there's been complete silence since then. :-/

Did the php ebuild maintainer(s) just disappear into thin air? Python 3.1 only took 4 days...

This wouldn't suck so much if php 5.3 weren't such a big release....but it really is.

Aggghh....

It seems you were right after all...

5.3.1_RC1 is out, I've run into a roadblock because I need something that's only possible with 5.3 features, and I can't find anything in layman.

I'm going to try the ebuild in bugzilla. Hope it works, because Gentoo's PHP herd seems to be "working on it" indefinitely.

Only because it's still unstable and, in my experience, still quite buggy. Most of my PHP applications won't work with it, save for perhaps WordPress.
The ebuild in that bug report by Frankiz works nearly perfectly though and is your answers if you absolutely need PHP 5.3.x.

It works and I can run a bunch of stuff just fine, now I've just got 4 broken extensions to figure out;

  • The pecl-apc in portage won't work, apparently I need 3.1.3 for 5.3 compatibility (update: renaming the ebuild to -3.1.3_p1 worked)
  • pecl-http wouldn't build, complaining about "duplicate static"
  • pecl-syck just finished emerging as I typed this :)
  • xdebug done too :D

Well, got everything working with 5.3.0 (apart from pecl-http which I didn't need anyway). Even phpMyAdmin seems to be working.

The only code-related problem I've come across so far is that it doesn't chdir() to the script's directory for whatever reason which broke a few things using relative pathnames (it's the script's fault there for making assumptions about the cwd, oh well).

Good enough for me. :)

(On closer inspection, it seems to be doing a chdir(/usr/bin) without warning in the middle of a script. That's kinda annoying...)

I think http was merged into PHP, so the extension is not needed as of PHP 5.3.0.
Don't use syck, it sucks big. Try this:

Is there an ebuild for that anywhere?

I've been using syck as an ini file replacement for at least a year now without problems, so I'm interested to know why it "sucks". Yes the documentation is a bit sparse, but I wasn't expecting a hardback novel for two functions...

I don't know why you said "using syck", but just in case, syck is actually an Yaml parser implementation.

Maybe I was a bit harsh, but I tried syck and had a bad experience, it couldn't handle some basic Yaml. sfYaml is a pure-PHP implementation, so you don't need an ebuild, simply include the files and you're good to go.

Sorry, I'm not impressed by pedantry and not prepared to throw away perfectly working code.

Hey, if it works for you, by all means use it. Just watch out for the caveats: Syck is a pretty weak Yaml parser.
