On the SuSE 11 Enterprise Sever, the PHP5 sockets extension is not included for installation: it's not on the DVD. The sources are there and you can try to build, but then the build needs xml2-config--so you run into dependency chains.
Before embarking on a large rebuild project, is there a simple way to get the sockets extension? I don't see it downloadable. What would you do? I'd like to stay with this version: 5.2.14 and I'd like to be able to do this with Yast versus building and installing separately, if possible.
