Topic: Unable to install php-pecl-sphinx - Centos 6, php 5.6


It looks like EPEL have removed a lot of orphaned packages recently. Remi's Php-pecl-sphinx is depending on libsphinxclient, that was removed. Here is a log:

Thanks for the notice.

Indeed this happen sometime... sad

As a quick fix, I have rebuild the same version which was in EPEL-6 and EPEL-7, and push them in "remi-safe" repository (2.0.8 for EL-6 and 2.1.5 for EL-7)

Will see later if it worth to be updated to a more recent version (knowing that the pecl extension seems dead... no update for PHP 7).
