Ah ha! I found the problem I kept having when trying to install packages through pecl.
Turns out there's a small bug with the cross mounting for the temp directory as stated here:
I hope somebody at DH is reading this and can fix this.
I'm trying to get extensions installed using pecl but kept running into this error. After some debugging, I've determined it was an issue with the shtool file. A but more debugging and If found out I was right and the above is the exact problem!
For those of you that didn't know; /tmp is actually a cross mount.
Hope you DH dogs (err, I mean gods!) can get this fixed.
