I am exploring a new server setup using debian squeeze(6). From a former FeeBSD perspective I have to say I like the OS verry much. The problem however is that the default PHP version is 5.3. Fixing this was not hard, since this is a general issue. I used the following guide
and managed to compile a working 5.2.17 binary. This binary has allmost all functionality bundled except for Xdebug wich is vital for my development rig.
Now I have tried to manualy compile Xdebug from source but it doesn't work for my 5.2 binary. Even temporarily replacing the systems phpize yields the same result.
Is there a solution for this problem? Like i.e: bundling xdebug during the php compiling?
My sincere appologies if my English is lacking. Any insights are welcome!
