phpseclib pear channel

Postby slackerr » Wed Nov 06, 2013 11:02 pm


I get errors when trying to download using the PEAR channel:

pear install phpseclib/Net_SSH2
Could not download from "", cannot download "phpseclib/Net_SSH2" (File ... -0.3.5.tar not valid (received: HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found

etc, lots of 404 errors downloading all packages.

It looks like there is no "tar" format, they are actually labeled like ... -0.3.5.tgz.

My PHP is not compiled with zlib.

Is it proper for PEAR channels to not have both TAR and TGZ files?

I didn't know pear did that. I have the *.tar files on my other computer but don't currently have access to it and may not for the next few days :(

I'll try to fix this asap and will post here when I have. Thanks and I apologize for the inconvenience :(

I am making an assumption that PEAR is doing this based on zlib availability. I can not find any knob that would download tar vs gz, but I noticed my machines that work have zlib and the ones that are grabbing TAR's do not have zlib.
