Hello Derick,

thank you for returning to my request.

Aehmm. It does not in my case. Just a mention in the list of parsed *.ini
files. Then there is the zend2 Logo, space PHP Credits.

Oh yes, as a sidenote: SuSE ships PHP with the "suhosin patch" for

yep. That's what I meant when I mentioned it initially.

I suppose you talk about the "Configure Command" block. I do not see it
listed there.
(I frighten a bit the recompile, also there is no real reason to...)

here come a few questionmarks. I read this in the documentation, but failed
to understand reasons / differences or the deeper sense behind it. Never the
less I tried

extension=xdebug.so --> the state I am in
zend_extension=xdebug.so --> mention in scanned inis ;-(
zend_extension_ts=xdebug.so --> same as above
extension_ts=xdebug.so --> same as above

the result of this puzzels me entirely. I would expect the full path example
to produce something sensible; if I use the full path


in my case, it just *fails* I even copied pasted the text to discover the
invisible typo, but there was none. It just sucks.

Well, my machine is internally. ;-( I just copied and pasted the stuff, it
looked pretty unuseable I'll rather post it on demand - not yet knowing the
policy on HTML / attachments on this list. Don't want to be the lists fool
with the second posting...
