how can I install php5-readline in raspbian? its not in the repos. And not in the debian repos with Wheezy arm support.
Update: November 2015
I abandoned Raspbian and moved to Pidora, which seems to have solved all the issues. :)
You could download the package (for later versions of Debian) from https://packages.debian.org/jessie/php5-readline , and then try and install that. This sometimes works, but may fail due to missing/outdated dependencies (dependencies are also linked on that page). You can install the packages using
dpkg -i FILE.deb (you may also be able to use
php5-readline is now in the standard Raspbian repo for users running Jessie. It can be installed with the command,
sudo apt-get install php5-readline -y.
