Some channels for PEAR. Use this to add them:

pear channel-discovery <url>
  • pear.php.net
  • pecl.php.net
  • components.ez.no
  • pear.phpdb.org
  • pear.phing.info
  • pear.symfony-project.com
  • pear.phpunit.de
  • pear.php-baustelle.de
  • pear.zeronotice.org
  • pear.phpontrax.com
  • pear.agavi.org
  • phpsavant.com

Unsupported protocol

If you get the following error message, you have to refresh the channels pear.php.net and pecl.php.net:

pear.php.net is using a unsupported protocal - This should never happen.
install failed

The easiest solution was found in the last post of a thread in the PEAR Forum:

  • go to /usr/share/php/.channels/
  • delete the files pear.php.net.reg and pecl.php.net.reg
  • do a sudo pear update-channels
