FAQ
hi,

php53 and bind97 from the 5.6/ tree are available in the c5-testing
repo, so test away. Consider the pkgs as mostly production ready, but
features that rely on other new pkgs or updates in 5.6 may not work. If
you run into one, let us know either on the list here, or in
#centos-devel on irc.freenode.net

    I've successfully installed Drupal 7 (require PHP > 5.2 ) on php53 stack
    from c5-testing , everything seems to work correctly.

    Good work

    This is awesome. I wonder how many other php apps that needed > 5.1 will
    now no longer need external repo's to work on CentOS-5 ?

    It would be even cool'er if we could get a list of them, test them and
    have their names listed in the Release Notes for 5.6 . Alternatively,
    perhaps in a php specific section of the wiki; or, feature creep, in an
    Apps known to work with CentOS section!

    Additionally, I've tested the following applications:

    * phpMyAdmin 3.3.9 (require php-5.2+) => PASS
    * Joomla! 1.6.0 (require php >= 5.2.4 ) => PASS


    I've noticed that the following packages are not available in php53
    stack (also not in the upstream):

    php-mcrypt
    php-mhash

    so it maybe an issue for application requiring those extensions.


    Best regards.

    It seems that "mhash" has been removed from php-5.3 (source [1]) and
    replaced with "hash"

    What about php53-mcrypt? I remember that the sources are in php-
    extras, thought.
    Is this package centos specific? Where it come from? I would offer
    time to compile
    and test it on my systems (phpmyadmin complains about missing mcrypt).

    It would be even cool'er if we could get a list of them, test them and

    perhaps in a php specific section of the wiki; or, feature creep, in

    Apps known to work with CentOS section!

    Right now, my tests were done with custom php applications and all
    apps run fine!

    short_open_tag = On needed in php.ini (default off now!).

    Thx

    I've tested phpMyAdmin 3.3.9 (check my emails in this thread) and it
    doesn't complain about the missing php-mcrypt.

    php53-mcrypt is not available in upstream (RHEL 5.6) too, it'll be the
    same in CentOS 5.6 (maybe in testing like php-5.2)

    Here is the statement of IUS Community Project about this issue:

    Regards.

    I want to stay close to the base distro (no rpm substitution).

    I have rebuild the php-extra package against 5.3.3 now (based on
    epel / el6 srpm)
    and with that i just have to manage this addon.

    here the spec file

    Cheers

    Hi KB, I am attaching a patch that is needed in order to build the
    "bind97" package with BIND DLZ (dynamically loadable zones) on an x86_64
    system.

    Specifically, we make heavy use of BIND DLZ with MySQL/Postgres as a
    backend. I wanted to make our own BIND package for our internal repo but
    it wouldn't compile against the *right* MySQL in /lib64, it kept looking
    in /lib for the libraries.

    This patch is actually one I got from the SRPM of CentOS' bind-9.3
    package I believe, but I can't find it there anymore, so not sure
    exactly which version I got it from. This works for BIND 9.6 as well
    which we are also using.

    Note that to make the patch work, you must compile BIND using the
    following steps:

    1. Install the patch
    2. Run 'autoconf' again
    3. Run configure with the following options:

    ./configure --with-libtool --with-pic --enable-threads
    --disable-openssl-version-check --with-dlz-mysql=yes --disable-static

    Hope this helps someone.

    Thanks,
    Khusro

    Correction: I got it from the following Fedora RPM, not sure why I
    decided to look there:

    bind-9.6.1-4.P1.fc11.src.rpm
