Hi again,Last time I ended up using the remi repo, it's working great. My php packages are the php53 ones from the CentOS-5 - Base repo (including php-pear 1:1.4.9-8.el5 ).
What I did was, I had the remi repo installed, and and installed mysql-server, mysql, libmysql, and many php-*, like php-pdo,php-mysql etc. So I wanted to revert to the base repo for these. So I removed the remi repo. And uninstalled all of theses packages, and reinstalled them using the yum coming from the base repo.
