Bug #58323 PECL module geoip fails to compile
Submitted: 2008-08-23 09:55 UTC Modified: 2008-08-23 11:05 UTC

Status: Not a bug Package: geoip (PECL)
PHP Version: 5.2.5 OS: OpenBSD
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

When I run: 'pecl install geoip' it fails. I have noticed -ldl 
flags in configure, which is not necessary on OpenBSD. I use 
autoconf version 2.61. Unfortunately removing the -ldl flags 
does nog get the module to compile. Some other modules (idn 
for example) do not compile, actually all modules fail to 
install properly.

(I am sorry for this not so very good bugreport, I am no 
programmer. I am always willing to supply more information or 
test things)

Expected result:
module is installed and compiles properly.

Actual result:
checking for gawk... no
checking for nawk... nawk
checking if nawk is broken... no
checking for geoip support... yes, shared
checking for geoip files in default path... found in 
checking for GeoIP_open in -lGeoIP... no
configure: error: wrong geoip lib version or lib not found
ERROR: `/tmp/pear/temp/geoip/configure' failed

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PECL itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PECL, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PECL.

Please read the error, it gives the exact reason of the failure:

configure: error: wrong geoip lib version or lib not found

You need the GeoIP library installed on your system, this is only a PHP wrapper around the GeoIP library. You need version 1.4.0 or higher, but from what I can see, you don't seem to have any version installed.
