Bug Description

Binary package hint: php-pear

When I try to install any pear module I get a memory allocation error. Below is an example.

--- snip ---
sudo pear install MDB2
/tmp/glibctest8GOtvu:1:22: error: features.h: No such file or directory
downloading MDB2-2.3.0.tgz ...
Starting to download MDB2-2.3.0.tgz (103,322 bytes)
........................done: 103,322 bytes

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 7680 bytes) in /usr/share/php/PEAR/PackageFile/v2/Validator.php on line 1515
--- snip ---

Well, since I found this page while Googling for more or less the exact same error message that I received on RHEL 5 x64, I think this can safely be classified as an upstream issue.

The PHP bug report is here: . It's marked Bogus.

As suggested in the bug report mentioned above, could you try to use peardev instead of pear to install your pear module ?
