This is driving me nuts already and there's no information about this whatsoever in Google, only 2006 posts, but they don't really help me.

I have CentOS 6.5 freshly updated, PHP 5.5, MySQL, Apache, NodeJS and some other web dev stuff, not really dirty local environment.

I even removed completely all pear files:

rm -rf 'find / -type f -name "pear*"'

Then, I installed the fresh version:


php go-pear.phar

And I always get this:

Please help guys....

/tmp/glibctestXXXX issue?

I have all glibc packages already:

[root@localhost pear]# rpm -qa | grep glibc

While I personally would have used the php-pear-* packages provided by EPEL (with the php-pear package coming from CentOS itself), I don't really see the problem. The installer script says the pear executable was installed - is it working as expected or not? If not, please post that error. I tend to disergard error messages about temporary files in /tmp - perhaps a bad practice but it's never yet bitten me on the butt.

Yeah, i've rolled back to php-pear, but it throws the same errors. I'm checking right now if the package installation went well anyway. – Fratyr Feb 24 '14 at 18:32
Yeah looks ok. It's just xdebug were yelling too much on a poorly written PERL code :) – Fratyr Feb 24 '14 at 22:20
