I run Centos5 but with PHP compiled (by the host) from Fedora because of a need for PHP 5.2.6. All works fine in principle.
I now have a need to add php-mbstring.
When I run yum install php-mbstring I get:
Error: Missing Dependency: php-common = 5.1.6-20.el5_2.1 is needed by package php-mbstring
But when I run yum list php-common I get:
php-common.x86_64 5.2.6-1.el5.remi installed
Update php-common results in nothing to do.
So it seems as if php-mbstring needs a lower version of php-common than the one I already have. That's unfortunately where my package management skills end.
BTW I get the same when trying to install php-gd
How can get php-mbstring on here?
