    Phoronix: Packages For PHP5-GTK On Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

    The Phoronix Test Suite is one of the few mainstream projects that uses PHP-GTK, a PHP5 extension that provides bindings for the GTK+ tool-kit on the desktop, for its user-interface.

            I use opensuse 11.3 and I just had to add http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_11.3/ to my repositories. Which wasn't a big deal

              Could you post the packaging source (.dsc file, .changes file, or tarball of debian directory) so someone else can?

                I just did a dpkg --build of the files I built manually.
