I downgraded PHP from 5.3 to 5.2 by doing something similar to mrkandy's script
Everything works fine except pear.
pear list shows the pear packages I installed before the downgrade and they all work. Pear itself doesn't though. I can no longer install or upgrade any packages and there are no errors displayed.
The .tgz's are downloaded and I can see them in
/build/buildd/php5-5.2.10.dfsg.1/pear-build-download/ but that's as far as it goes, nothing is installed.
I can't seem to find any log of the process and I don't know how to run
pear install in verbose mode (if there is such a thing).
Does anybody have any hints for me, some threads to pull?
I am using Linux Mint 9 (a lot like ubuntu 10.04)
