as one of the forum members susgested - I need to learn PECL to use.

So I tried today, but not succesfully.

I tried installing random extention, I choose html_parse http://pecl.php.net/package/html_parse\

So as documentattin writes - I run:

pecl install html_parse

in the ubuntu command line. And get error instantly:

 Warning: lstat(): Lstat failed for /tmp/pear/cache/741d4ebd14ce5988d05f7b5bc85f2e0arest.cacheid in PEAR/REST.php on line 276

Warning: lstat(): Lstat failed for /tmp/pear/cache/741d4ebd14ce5988d05f7b5bc85f2e0arest.cacheid in /usr/share/php/PEAR/REST.php on line 276
No releases available for package "pecl.php.net/html_parse"
install failed

So I tried to do a google serch, but did not find exacly what I need to fix those errors.

So could someone explain those errors and point me at some direction?

It seems there's a bug related to your problem, for more information check:

Is this happening only with html_parse package?

Anyway try by adding sudo:

sudo pecl install html_parse

Otherwise write the specific package version:

sudo pecl install channel://pecl.php.net/html_parse-1.0.0

And if it doesn't work, download it and run pecl with the local file:

wget http://pecl.php.net/get/html_parse-1.0.0.tgz
sudo pecl install ./html_parse-1.0.0.tgz

If still you have problems you can compile it. Since html_parse depends from ekhtml you have to install it:

wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/ekhtml/files/latest/download
tar xvf download
cd ekhtml-0.3.2
sudo make install

And then do the same with html_parse:

tar xvf html_parse-1.0.0.tgz
cd html_parse-1.0.0
sudo make install

And it should work.

thank you very much :) I have no idea how I would solve myself this without help :) But really there is saying its better to learn to fishing, than give a fish, at least in our country. So you gave me a fish. But I did not learn how to create those steps by thinking.

But anyway, its still good, and I doubt that I will need this often, so I will just check this when I need.

Answering your questions:

Is this happening only with html_parse package?

no, same with tidy package.

By adding sudo it started showign something different, but still error:

darius@dc17ljr2e:~$ sudo pecl install html_parse

same with
sudo pecl install channel://pecl.php.net/html_parse-1.0.0

and same with downloading local file.

After I did

wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/ekhtml/files/latest/download
tar xvf download
cd ekhtml-0.3.2
sudo make install

then I did not need even to compile html_parse, tried again

sudo pecl install html_parse

and it worked :)

Btw no I want to clean up, not to leave trash. So I uninstalled html_parse. But I need to uninstall ekhtml. But it is not pecl package as I understood, at least I dont see it when type:

/usr/bin/pecl list

so how can I uninstall ekhtml?

You don't find ekhtml inside pecl because it isn't a PHP extension.

In order to remove it run sudo make uninstall in the source directory of ekhtml. If you deleted that, download it again and compile it with the same parameters and then run the uninstall command. That should remove everything related to ekhtml. By the way: to get more information about parameters run ./configure --help (for parameters strictly related to the program to compile) and make --help to get more information about the compiling process.

But I did not learn how to create those steps by thinking.

Sorry for that, sometimes I just write too much.. :D

Sorry for that, sometimes I just write too much.. :D
everything is fine :) I will learn later if I will need :)

hmm so removing takes too much steps. Not optimal. Why nobody creates uninstall program like in windows :) even if it is from command line.

worked fine, thank you
