    Why are you still using Gearman 0.8.3 beta, when the latest stable version is 1.1.2?

    Thank you again for your great work. Do you think it is possible to package php5-dev also? It will allow us to compile any extension we miss.

    Second question: against which mysql libraries this php is compiled? I thing it should be always compiled against actual dotdeb mysql version.
    From log:
    PHP message: PHP Warning: mysqli::mysqli(): Headers and client library minor version mismatch. Headers:50537 Library:50619

    Thanks and sorry for my ignorance, you are right of course.

    I know about mysqlnd and I was intending to use it, but I forget forcing right release.
    Of course it works ok if you force release:
    aptitude install -t wheezy-php55 php5-dev php5-mysqlnd

    Mmmh, it seems that current php5-memcached with 5.5 is broken:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    php5-memcached : Depends: libmemcached11 but it is not installable
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

    It seems it’s only present in the “wheezy” release, not in the “wheezy-php55” one
