    installing php configure error?

    Dear Forum,

    I am trying to install php form the tutorial "Building a Database-Driven Web Site Using PHP and MySQL" as per it's instructions.

    When I type the following:

    ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/php --with-config-file-path=/usr/local/php --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs --enable-track-vars --enable-magic-quotes --enable-debugger

    I get the following error:

    lex: command not found
    error: cannot find output from lex; giving up

    I'm using Suse 7.1 ppc edition.

    Anyone got any ideas???

    You need to install the 'flex' RPM package, which should have come with your distribution.
