For some reason, on one of the servers that we have in our network running Ubuntu Server 12.04, the version of libxml2 is 2.8.0 (which is the one from Ubuntu 12.10).
This creates some issues, especially since I need to install libxml2-dev and I get some unmet dependencies.
When I want to install a library like libxml2 on ubuntu, I enter sudo apt-get install libxml2 and enter tab key. There are several names come out such as libxml2, libxml2-dev, libxml2-dbg and libxml2-uils. What are the full name of these suffixes? Which one do I need to install?
our servers need to update the libxml2 version from 2.2.26 to 2.9 (latest version). It is no problem that we have been installed the libxml2-2.9 version on our servers. but the problem is how can we config the libs path of libxml2 path in php? Since it still show the old version on phpinfo().
In a security notice, Canonical has published details about libxml2 vulnerabilities for its Ubuntu 13.04, Ubuntu 12.10, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, and Ubuntu 10.04 LTS operating systems. According to Canonical, USN-1904-1 fixed several vulnerabilities in libxml2, but this update caused a regression for certain users.
