is possible to install PHP with option --enable-pcntl (compile flag) with yum on Fedora 14?

I would like turn on pcntl support for my php scripts but I don't want to compile PHP.


Thats it, i stuck with this problem. Its no way to find any package like php-pcntl for Fedora, i mus recompile php with option --enable-pcntl but if i have installed php with yum, how i recompile php? Know anybody?

Any idea how i enable pcntl on php without compile new php or with using yum service?

No. Configuration options in the source code are fixed when the binary package is built. The best you can do is see if pcntl has been built as a separate package, e.g. php-pcntl.
