Normally when I install something like (for example) php, I might compile it using ./configure for the extensions I want. Example:
../configure --with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs --with-mysqli=/usr/bin/mysql_config --prefix=/usr/local/php521 --with-gd --with-zlib-dir=/usr/local --with-png-dir=/usr/lib --with-jpeg-dir=/usr/local --with-config-file-path=/usr/local/apache2/conf --with-curl --with-dom --with-pgsql=/usr/local/pgsql821 --enable-ftp --with-ming
How is this done with Yum? And where does one find the package names to use with Yum?
I'm playing with CentOS spacifically.
