#234 Curl 7.10.5 or lter

Package Requests
Request (100)

PHP 5.2.0 source code configuration with curl support requires curl version 7.10.5 or later. The current RPM available on AIX toolbox (http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/p/os/aix/linux/download.html) is 7.9.3. Could you please publish the updated binary? the detailed requirement is given below.

One of our application requires Apache2.2.3 + php-5.2.0 + mysql-5.0.45 hosted on AIX 5.3.PHP compilation in gcc always failing due to older version of curl package (/opt/freeware), and at the same time we are not successful with the latest version of curl after compiling it from source. Hence we are looking for help from PSN to get the required version of curl (Open source package).

We need PHP configured using following options and it’s been failing with following messages.

./configure --prefix=/isvol1/SPL/apps/PHP-5.2.0 --with-apxs2=/isvol1/SPL/apps/Apache2.2.3/bin/apxs --with-config-file-path=/isvol1/SPL/apps/Apache2.2.3/conf/httpd.conf --with-gd --with-zlib-dir=/opt/freeware/lib --enable-shared --with-png --with-zlib --with-bz2 --with-xml --with-jpeg-dir=/opt/freeware/lib --with-png-dir=/opt/freeware/lib --with-xpm-dir=/opt/freeware/lib --with-freetype-dir=/opt/freeware/lib --with-pear=/opt/freeware/lib --enable-mbstring --enable-ftp --with-openssl-dir=/opt/pware --enable-calendar --with-ldap=/opt/pware --enable-soap --with-mysql=/isvol1/SPL/apps/Mysql-5.0.45 --with-pdo-mysql=/isvol1/SPL/apps/Mysql-5.0.45 --with-ibm-db2=/isvol1/SPL/apps/DB2/V8.1 --with-unixODBC --with-curl=/opt/freeware --enable-magic-quotes --with-snmp=/usr/local/net-snmp-5.3.1

The error message says it requires cURL version 7.10.5 or later. The current installed version is

bash-3.00# rpm -qa |grep -i curl

We also tried this compilation using curl-7.17.0 after downloading its source and configured its default option, then configure works fine, where as make fails with following message.

So we feel if PSN can help us to get latest curl package (cURL version 7.10.5 or later) other than on AIX Toolbox for Linux Applications (AIX Toolbox for Linux Applications), it would have been great help. The other details we have found is on AIX wiki (http://www-941.ibm.com/collaboration/wiki/display/WikiPtype/aixopen?decorator=printable) . But nowhere we couldn’t find the latest version equivalent the one is on AIX toolbox for Linux applications of curl that works with PHP 5.2.0.
