PHP 5 & SuSe 10


I've been going mad on trying to find an PHP 5 RPM package for SuSe 10.

On several forums and site's I read that SuSe didn't release any RPM packages for PHP 5 (only 4)

Since I'm pretty new to SuSe (and most of all I'm laizy ) I'm trying to find an RPM for PHP 5.

Now I came accross an article on this site that says you can use the RPM packages for SuSe distribution 9.3. and just install them through YaSt.
It also says this should work for most of RPM packages that aren't released for Distribution 10.x

My question mainly is, does this work for PHP 5 and SuSe 10?
If so, do I need to take extra steps to finish this task successfully?
Or is it just click the RPM package and go with the flow?

I would be gratefully for all the help I can get in this.

Thanks in advance and thanks for reading.

php5 is is the Suse repos. Follow the instructions on the opensuse website to add a Suse mirror to your yast repos and then search for php5.
