Description: ------------ when trying to install PEAR by using this command (as specified on the web page): $ pear -c ~/.pearrc install Archive_Tar PEAR Console_Getopt XML_RPC i got the following error message: requires package `Console_Getopt' >= 1.2 requires package `XML_RPC' >= 1.0.4 PEAR: Dependencies failed it seems as the problem is solved if PEAR is put at the end of the command, like this: $ pear -c ~/.pearrc install Archive_Tar Console_Getopt XML_RPC PEAR Peace Nisse

no website bug.

I'm pretty sure this is not a bug in documentation - the order of packages on the command-line should be insignificant. However, I'm also positive that the PEAR version you have globally installed is old I am also positive you are not using the latest version of PEAR, so the fix is to change the order in the docs, and add a note that the order is important in PEAR version 1.2.1 and lower.

Hello, as per mj and cellog comments this is not a website bug. You are almost certainly running an old version of pear and probably and old version of PHP ("If you have a recent installation of PHP, you can relax: The PEAR base installation is already there, unless you have compiled your PHP with the ./configure flag --without-pear.")
