-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 It sounds like you have an older version of libmcrypt (2.4.0) already installed on your system. What does 'which libmcrypt-config' return? The one you installed should be at /usr/local/bin/libmcrypt-config (assuming you didn't pass a '--prefix' option to configure for libmcrypt). If it returns something other than that, try running 'export LIBMCRYPT_CONFIG=/usr/local/bin/libmcrypt-config' and then run configure for mcrypt again.
If you do have an older version of libmcrypt installed, you can find out which package owns it by running rpm -qf `which libmcrypt-config` (note the use of backticks) If you want some more interactive help on this, feel free to join our IRC channel on freenode: #asfvcl Josh On Monday February 14, 2011, Alexander Patterson wrote: > Hello, > > I'm having a few issues with a new install of VCL 2.2 > > I am using Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.6 (Tikanga) > > yum install httpd mod_ssl php-gd php-mcrypt php-mysql php-xml > php-xmlrpc php-ldap > > -yum php-mcrypt ins't working or being found in 5.6 in Red Hat, so I > have to set it up manuailly.
