I recommend the tarball (php.net) install. When switching from RPM to tarball, it's best to UNINSTALL the RPMs first, then install the tarball. You can download it first safely. You can even do all the stuff in the instructions UP TO the "make install" before you uninstall the RPM. You may also need to install either "devel" RPMs for other packages you use with PHP, or uninstall the RPMs and install them from source as well. Something you expect to re-install a lot (Apache, MySQL, PHP) it's best to use tarball. If you expect to buy a new computer before re-installing, use the RPM :-) -- Like Music? http://l-i-e.com/artists.htm I'm looking for a PRO QUALITY two-input sound card supported by Linux (any major distro).
