APC package dependency

Asked by Mike on 2013-04-05


In the process of setting up a server with nginx & php-fpm, I went to install the php54 packages I wanted (php54-fpm etc) which was fine until I wanted php54-pecl-apc. The problem is that it depends on the basic php54 package which in turn depends on httpd. I can see why php54 depends on httpd because it is the Apache module, but why does php54-pecl-apc depend on php54?

Should the APC package not actually depend on php54-common?

09:20:31 mjpa | was expecting more people... anyway, why does php54-pecl-apc depend on php54? php54 looks to be just the apache module
09:29:38 @jness | good morning mjpa
09:30:47 @jness | this is because php54-pecl-apc is built off of the php54 source:
09:34:57 mjpa | hmm thats a shame
09:36:02 @jness | well in order to build a pecl module, and version of php needs to be available. since we provide pecl modules
                                    for php52, php53u, and php54 we build this modules against each version of php5*
09:36:44 mjpa | yea i see the need for php*-devel, which again needs the base php package
09:36:53 mjpa | was hoping to avoid having apache on here
09:38:18 @jness | well just because httpd is being pulled in with auto deps doesn't mean you need to start the service. httpd
                                    doesn't take up to much room on its own.
09:39:00 jasonc | in rhel5 pretty much everything ends up with apache installed

Can you help with this problem?
