How can I install php5-curl on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS ?
I have a working server running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (GNU/Linux 3.2.0-24-generic x86_64), including apache and php. Now I want to add curl support for php by running this:
Sounds simple? No. I get this response:
apt-get install php5-curl
It looks like I have to upgrade to a new kernel (3.2.0-26) just to get php-curl working. I would prefer to not have to do this.
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
linux-image-generic : Depends: linux-image-3.2.0-26-generic but it is not going to be installed
php5-curl : Depends: libcurl3 (>= 7.16.2-1) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: php5-common (= 5.3.10-1ubuntu3.4) but 5.3.10-1ubuntu3.2 is to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
Is there some way I can install php curl for my kernel version which is 3.2.0-24?

Here is the answer:
I had thought that it simply wanted to upgrade the kernel. It turns out that there was actually a real problem with dependencies, which occurred as a result of the partition running out of space. After a bit of deleting, I found some more space and installed the new kernel. Now everything works great.
