Simple RPM problem

ARGH. I wrote an entire post, submitted it and found I can;t post any URLs. I understand why that is, but it's a bit unfortunate that I have to retype my entire post. I'll keep it short:

I am installing PHP 5.0.2. I receive the error:

libxml2 version 2.5.10 or greater required.

I Tried to install libxml2 2.5.10 (downloaded it from but I learned I still get the error, because I used the src.rpm file.

Do you know where I can get a 'normal' rpm? Or should I install it in another way?

Since you didn't post what distro you're using, there's no way I can point you to the exact file. Here's a link to every libxml2 file on

When you find the one for your distro, just pick a .rpm file instead of src.rpm.

use yum with fedora

I am using fedora core 2, and just installed it now using yum. I guess the latest stable version listed in my yum repositories was 4.3.8-2.1

I took awhile using yum (it needed to track down the following dependencies)

apr 0.9.4-11
apr util
httpd 2.0.51-2.7

But it was all handled automatically in about 20 minutes.

Ehawk, I would really like an application that handles this sort of thing for me, but I am new to Linux, and fooling around with it like this just teaches me more about how it works I hope.

I now use PHP 4.3.7 and Apache 2.0.5 on Red Hat 8.0.

I have switched to an older PHP version because I just couldn't het the dependency issue fixed with installing libxml2. Now, my libxml2 problem is gone, but I run into 1 (hopefully final) problem.

I have edited httpd.conf and added the lines

LoadModule php4_module modules/
AddModule mod_php4.c

This returns the error

Invalid command 'AddModule', perhaps mis-spelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration.

Since I copy-pasted the lines from the INSTALL file, misspellings are not the issue. What module am I missing and how to get it installed?
