Kohana 3 RHEL/CentOS RPMs

As I have not found any available, here is my build for Kohana – the PHP development framework – for RHEL 5 based operating systems.

You can find Kohana RPM for the current stable release 3.0.5 here, and the source RPM is available here in case you want to rebuild it yourself (and you might, details follow). New releases to correspond with new releases from Kohana will be updated there as needed.

This package is built on a CentOS 5.4 machine, with pretty much default settings.

Please note that Kohana is not tested with the PHP version 5.1.6 which is what RHEL/CentOS 5 uses by default, so there could be some problems with using it on such a default installation of the operating system. There was one place where Kohana uses a function in a way that is not supported on PHP 5.1.6, and I had to patch that with a workaround.

This package includes additional patches that I felt where necessary, some to work around Kohana issues and some to add functionality that I felt is missing or or lacking. If there is interest I can expand on the work there. I do intend to submit all patches upstream, of course – once I’m more familiar with the community process of Kohana.

In the mean time, you can try it out and let me know if it works for you or not.
