My problem is apparently a recognized 'bug' , but do you please have a solution for it ?
I am using PHP 5.5.3 on ubuntu 14 [Tahr] . And while php works fine, I can't install pecl extensions using

Code: Select all

sudo pecl install <extension>

I tried installing 'runkit-sandbox' extension
but it fails . Infact, I can't install any extension on pecl or pear . and error is always the same

Code: Select all

could not extract the package.xml file from "/build/buildd/php5-5.5.9+dfsg/pear-build-download/runkit-1.0.3.tgz"
Download of "" succeeded, but it is not a valid package archive
Invalid or missing remote package file
install failed

The package does download in "/build/buildd/php5-5.5.9+dfsg/pear build download" directory but when it comes to extracting it , it fails !

After hours of trying various methods, I still can't solve it. All I know is its a bug due to incompatibility between PHP version 5.5 / ubuntu14 AND pear archive_tar .

Yes , I have heard of a so-called patch to correct it here. tried it as well , but even that doesn't work

I also tried "pear upgrade" command but even that doesn't work !

What should I do ???
