pecl install geoip

I was trying to install geoip for piwik but got this error.

Appreciate help in solving this issue.....

Howdy -- see if it helps to install the geoip devel package, which can be done with this command:

yum install geoip-devel

I tried, but I got: No Such Package

[root@ns4 ~]# yum install geoip-devel Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, security Setting up Install Process Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * base: * extras: * updates: No package geoip-devel available. Error: Nothing to do [root@ns4 ~]#

Ah, it looks like that package may only be available through EPEL.

Try running this command:

rpm -Uvh

After that, are you then able to install geoip?

Got error again...

[root@ns4 ~]# rpm -Uvh Retrieving warning: /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.STNnAZ: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID 0608b895: NOKEY error: Failed dependencies: GeoIP = 1.6.5-1.el6 is needed by GeoIP-devel-1.6.5-1.el6.x86_64 [root@ns4 ~]#

Currently installed version is GeoIP-1.4.7-0.1.20090931cvs.el6.x86_64

Okay, I believe you can try something like this then:

rpm -UVH

That will install both RPM's.

Result of above command: [root@ns4 ~]# rpm -UVH error: open of /usr/share/comps/x86_64/hdlist failed: No such file or directory [root@ns4 ~]#

REsult of [root@ns4 ~]# pecl install geoip pecl/geoip is already installed and is the same as the released version 1.0.8 install failed [root@ns4 ~]#

But the "GeoIP (PECL)" still shows as not installed in piwik
