This is probably my own config problem, and not a real bug, but...

Just installed php-4.0.6-6.i386.rpm
after updating a number of libraries
including curl-ssl-7.6-1.i386.rpm

Running php on the commandline only produces:
php: error while loading shared libraries: 
php: undefined symbol: curl_global_init

My /usr/bin contains:
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root           16 Sep  3 10:40 /usr/lib/ ->*
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root           16 Sep  3 10:40 /usr/lib/ ->*
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root       113921 Jan 27  2001 /usr/lib/*

I'm pretty ignorant of libraries, so k.i.s.s. if at all possible.. (thanks) but if any other info will help,
I'll be watching my email..

Note: php3 apache module is working on my system.

(gdb) run php
Starting program: /usr/bin/php php
then: then/endif not found.
/usr/bin/php: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/bin/php: undefined symbol: curl_global_init

Program exited with code 0177.

Again, this is an rpm, I don't know what the compile
directives or options were..

You need to update your cURL installation to the latest version and then it should work.

I grabbed in the ConnectivaLinux 
libcurl-7.7.1-2cl.i386.rpm (the only one offered,
and had to use --nodeps because of complaints that
curl 2cl conflicts with curl 1cl ?duh?)

but I still get the same 'undefined curl_global_init'.

Again, I started with curl-ssl-7.6-1.i386.rpm
then got               libcurl-7.7.1-2cl.i386.rpm

Another detail: libs from openssl.0.9.6..rpm were not
properly registered in my rpm db so installing libcurl
also complained - even though they're there!

But then I noticed there's libcrypto and libssl
0.9.6 a & b and I've got b. So I've made links for the 'a' versions to the 'b' versions.. am I screwing something up here?

Following Sterling's advice, I upgraded libcurl to 2.0.1 (which does contain the string curl_global_init) via curl-7.8.1-1.i386.rpm from  
but no change..  still undefined.Removed curl, removed php,  
reinstalled the rpms, reran ldconfig manually  
-- still no go. Guess I could try to compile from source,  
(but, why should it be necessary?)

You're doing something wrong there. libcurl 7.8.1 works
just fine here. Please ask further support questions 
on the mailing lists, this is not any bug.
