Topic: Problem upgrading to php-5.3: file

Hi,
I try to upgrade from php-5.2.10 to php-5.3.0, but I can't. php-common needs 'file':

[root@host ~]# yum upgrade php*

I have file:

pear list

File                       1.3.0    stable
File_Find                  1.3.0    stable
Fileinfo                   1.0.4    stable

[root@host~]# file -v
file-4.26
magic file from /usr/local/share/file/magic

I also tried to yum clean all and redo the upgrade process. I tried to remove php and reinstall php. Nothing to do. Same error.
It seems that php-common-5.2.10 find 'file', while php-common-5.3.0 doesn't find it.

Could you help me?

This is not the standard "file" command.

Shoudl install the "file" from rpm.

$ rpm -qf $(which file)
file-4.17-9.0.1.el5
$ file -v
file-4.17

Thank you very much. Time ago I upgraded 'file' from source because I need a newest version.
Now I made a 'file' rpm and installed it. No more problem, php upgraded.

So, just a notice: until php-5.2.x there's no need of 'file' from rpm. From php-5.3 'file' rpm-based is mandatory.
