Subject Re: [firebird-php] firebird-php-mandrake installation
Author Dariusz Zelichowski
This is hilarious. I posted those very instructions you
mention here on this mailing list a few months ago.

The one your links points to, should work for Mandrake 10.0
(both final and community releases) and FB 1.03. I instaled
it a number of times and I had no problems. I also posted
here instructions for FB 1.5.1 and Mandrake 10.0.

Both installations assume default Madrake 10.0
installation, including Apache 2 and the version of PHP
which comes with Mandrake 10.0. Make sure your
confidurations is as specified. Make sure that the version
of PHP you download and compile is php-4.3.5. The
instructions may not work with other versions. They may
also not work with versions of Mandrake other than 10.0.

The steps are not just suggestions, so make sure you follow
all of them carefully. Otherwise it may not work, and FB
may even fly away with your girfriend. You've been warned

I hope this helps.
