Description:
------------
The following pear cli commands only work right when they are run as root:
pear info
pear remote-info
pear list-all
pear list
pear list-upgrades
pear search

They should also work as non-root since they don't change anything in the PEAR installation, they are just informative.

Actual result:
--------------
meebey@meebey-mobile:~$ pear info Net_SmartIRC
could not create lock file: failed to open stream: Permission denied
meebey@meebey-mobile:~$ pear remote-info Net_SmartIRC     
could not create lock file: failed to open stream: Permission denied
meebey@meebey-mobile:~$ pear list-all
could not create lock file: failed to open stream: Permission denied
meebey@meebey-mobile:~$ pear list                    
could not create lock file: failed to open stream: Permission denied
meebey@meebey-mobile:~$ pear list-upgrades
could not create lock file: failed to open stream: Permission denied
meebey@meebey-mobile:~$ pear search irc
could not create lock file: failed to open stream: Permission denied

after I got some background info from pierre, I understood that it's not a user problem. It's a problem of filelocking, which only works right when the user runs the pear cli that installed it. So own user installations of PEAR work in their homedirs. The systemwide one only for root in this case (root installed it).
I will analyze this problem further...

pear info
pear remote-info
pear list-all
pear list
pear list-upgrades

work with out being root now ;) just tested. though it seems to give back outdated info.

like pear remote-info Liveuser says that newest version is 0.8.1 but the local version is 0.10.0 ;)
But this was do to the none root user had diffrent pear config, which is silly IMO.

also using pear search LiveUser (or just anything else) gives back:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 2949120 bytes) in /usr/share/pear/XML/RPC.php(750) : eval()'d code on line 938
 
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 0 bytes) in Unknown on line 0

already been reported http://pear.php.net/bugs/bug.php?id=319 though.
