If PHP is compiled with --enable-versioning, the following php startup error is logged to php error-log if APC 3.0.3 is enabled:

PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library '/usr/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20050617/' - 
/usr/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20050617/ undefined symbol: OnUpdateLong in Unknown on line 0

php compiled with --enable-versioning:

% nm -o /usr/lib/apache/ | grep OnUpdateLong
/usr/lib/apache/ t OnUpdateLong

php compiled without --enable-versioning:

% nm -o /usr/lib/apache/ | grep OnUpdateLong
/usr/lib/apache/ T OnUpdateLong

I'm not sure if this is expected behaviour, it took me many hours to track this down. --enable-versioning is used in  Gentoo PHP-ebuilds, and it worked with older releases of APC. 

If this is expected behaviour and will not change in future releases, please let me know.

This won't be fixed.  --enable-versioning will probably just go away.  Gentoo shouldn't be using it.

You PHP guys need to do a better job than this!

I am trying to get apache started with in modules/ directory and it keeps complaining about OnUpdateLong.


nm | grep OnUpdateLong

I am finding that it outputs

U OnUpdateLong

which means this symbol is undefined. Why the heck does apache complain then?

For someone trying to learn PHP this one reason is good enough to quit. I already spent close to 5 hours trying to fix this problem, which I could have spent learning PHP.

You guys want to compete with JAVA, then start doing a better job.

If you just want stuff to work, why in the world are you 
running Gentoo?  Most Linux distros have perfectly working 
packages of php and php_apc.  Use one of those.  If you are a 
fiddler, run Gentoo, but don't whine about it.
