Running the following command:
> sudo pecl install spidermonkey
I receive the following error:
... ... a bunch of successful checks ... ... checking whether to enable spidermonkey support... yes, shared configure: error: jsapi.h not found. Please reinstall libjs. ERROR: `/var/tmp/spidermonkey/configure' failed
I attempted to remedy the problem by installing js-devel, which, after wrestling with various yum repositories, I finally did manually like so:
> wget http://pkgs.repoforge.org/js/js-1.60-1.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm > wget http://pkgs.repoforge.org/js/js-devel-1.60-1.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm > yum install js-1.60-1.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm > yum install js-devel-1.60-1.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm
(Not sure why js-devel required js to be installed first ... but, it complained when I tried to install js-devel solo.)
pecl install, I receive the same error. Is my understanding that the js-devel package contains the libjs stuff simply incorrect? Are there additional steps? Or, do I need to look elsewhere to get libjs?
ADDENDUM: I also tried removing the above packages (using yum) and installing these builds:
> wget http://puias.math.ias.edu/data/puias/6/x86_64/os/Addons/js-1.70-12.puias6.x86_64.rpm > yum install js-1.70-12.puias6.x86_64.rpm > wget http://puias.math.ias.edu/data/puias/6/x86_64/os/Addons/js-devel-1.70-12.puias6.x86_64.rpm > yum install js-devel-1.70-12.puias6.x86_64.rpm
No dice. The command line js interpreter works perfectly. But, PECL yields the same error.
