Description: ------------ I tried installing a package by specifying the exact URL in order to see if this would ignore the state check (I would expect it to ignore the state). However I got the following results: C:\php>pear install Package name '' not valid

This bug has been fixed in CVS. In case this was a documentation problem, the fix will show up at the end of next Sunday (CET) on In case this was a website problem, the change will show up on the website in short time. Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PEAR better. I knew it :) The "improvements" to my download code broke things, causing this bug. Shortcuts are always bad no matter how clever. I forgot to make a patch prior to commit. Here's the lines that must be added at line 743 of Installer.php: if (preg_match('#^(http|ftp)://#', $pkgfile)) { $pkgfile = $this->_downloadFile($pkgfile, $config, $options, $errors, $version, $origpkgfile, $state); if (PEAR::isError($pkgfile)) { return $pkgfile; } $tempinfo = $this->infoFromAny($pkgfile); if (isset($options['alldeps']) || isset($options['onlyreqdeps'])) { // ignore dependencies if there are any errors if (!PEAR::isError($tempinfo)) { $mywillinstall[strtolower($tempinfo['package'])] = @$tempinfo['release_deps']; } } $installpackages[] = array('pkg' => $tempinfo['package'], 'file' => $pkgfile, 'info' => $tempinfo); continue; }

This bug's status is Closed -- however, I am still experiencing the exact problem described by Lukas as of PEAR 1.3.1. Did this bug reappear since the Nov 17 fix?
