Stuart Herbert is looking for some more input on a different sort of question (one that I can't say I've seen asked before) - what are some of the issues with default Linux distribution PHP installs.
Most Linux distributions ship with packages for PHP, but not everyone is happy with these packages. If youâ€™re not happy with the PHP packages for a specific Linux distro (no matter how obscure), Iâ€™d love to hear what you think the problems are and (if possible) what the correct solution should be.
Just leave a comment on the post with the things you might have noticed. Comments already made reference issues in Debian/Ubuntu, RedHat and a few other more general "state of PHP packages" comments too.
