I'm trying to install mongodb driver with pecl and for this i need phpize (php-devel). Does anyone know how can i resolve this issue or there is another way to install php-mongodb driver?

I try as suggested : using --skip-broken to work around the problem and running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest Didn't work either

sudo yum install php-devel

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

  • Add result of list yum list installed. my final goal is to install mongo-db php driver. didn't know it will be so hard. Feb 15, 2014 at 11:50
  • This package is already in EPEL, named php-pecl-mongo. Why are you trying to compile it? Feb 15, 2014 at 12:26

Your problem is here:

Error: Package: php-devel-5.3.3-22.el6.x86_64 (shared-rhel-x86_64-server-optional-6)
           Requires: php(x86-64) = 5.3.3-22.el6
           Installed: php-5.3.3-27.el6_5.x86_64 (@rhel-x86_64-server-6)

Your version of php is higher than the available php-devel. Either downgrade php to 5.3.3-22 or find a channel/repo that offers you the later version of php-devel.

  • pecl install mongo still not working for me. even that i installed php-devel from fedora repo. I manually installed the php-mongo-driver and its working now. Feb 15, 2014 at 14:53
