I try to install APC from pecl. I do
# pecl install apc

and have this error 

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 23040 bytes) in /usr/share/pear/PEAR/Dependency2.php on line 636
Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 0 bytes)

Memory in php.ini is set to 16MB

I also stopped mod_security to be sure.

I use this pear version

As I can't install it with pecl I've tried to install it manualy.

Phpize --> done OK

./configure --> Failed !

# ./configure --enable-apc --enable-apc-mmap --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs --with-php-config=/usr/bin/php-config

Do you need more informations in config.log ?

Thanks a ton for your help

arff what newbee I do :)

Of course if I install gc++ it could help a lot :)

Sorry for his false bug report from a bas newbee

has the pear error disappeared or did you just work around it ?
 [2006-04-18 06:59 UTC]
The PEAR error may occur when not using the the *-dev version of the scripts, e.g. pear-dev install pecl/apc.
 [2006-04-18 17:11 UTC] pfoubert at carat-hosting dot com

Thank for your answer. The pear error still here. So I've done a work around and installed it manually.

If I understand well you mean that I have to install it with this command ?  pear-dev install pecl/apc

Because when I ran it with
 peardev install pecl/apc

I have this error
downloading APC-3.0.10.tgz ...

Use mmap instead of shmget (usually a good idea) [yes] :
Use apxs to set compile flags (if using APC with Apache)? [yes] :

ERROR: `/tmp/tmpo0k4jD/APC-3.0.10/configure --enable-apc-mmap=yes --with-apxs' failed

In fact my tmp dir is a partition with noexec option. Is there a way to run the configure and install elsewhere ?

Yet I have uninstalled APC. Since it was installed I had error  in /var/log/http/error_log with huge segfault causing  blank page to some clients. (the segfault is only when the cache memory is full).

I'll let my box running without APC few days to be sure I have no more these errors, then I^ll re-install it and see.

I got this error too.
When I install APC with pecl on X86_64,I do 
# pecl install APC
It shows:
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 23040 bytes) in /usr/share/pear/PEAR/PackageFile/v2.php on line 948
Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 0 bytes)

memory_limit in my php.ini already set to 64M

when I do it in a X86_32 system,it works well,why? This is a x86_64 bug ?
 [2008-08-18 12:24 UTC] jason at draxjinn dot com
Adding the following line:

ini_set('memory_limit', '32M');

to the top of:


Should fix the problem. (Add it right below the comments in the header....)

This issue is still occurring in CentOS 5...
 [2009-07-12 23:44 UTC] trent at jp dot ibm dot com
This problem also happens on RHEL 5.3 X86_64 (i386 and PPC platforms were OK). 

The pearcmd.php workaround works fine.  Thanks!
