Download failed: (Unknown cipher in list: ALL)

I was trying to install PHPUnit with Composer (on CentOS 5.6, if it makes any difference), but I kept receiving the error Unknown cipher in list: ALL.

As it turns out, this isn’t an issue with PHP or Composer, but with cURL. Updating cURL and rebooting worked fine:

sudo yum update && sudo reboot 0

Now, I can install things fine

FFII iOS: Game Freezes

Something a bit different this time. I’m currently playing through Final Fantasy 2 on my phone (iOS8, just in case it matters) and the game would freeze after certain pieces of dialog. It’s happened to me twice so far:

  • When getting Scott’s ring in Fynn, the dialog comes up and just stays there forever
  • When finding the pass in a chest in Bafsk
  • After staying in an inn

It seems as though this bug only happens when there is no audio (as a “success!” sound plays in all instances). To re-enable audio, swipe down the notification centre once FFII is running, then swipe it back up. You should start to hear game sounds and once you get to these points, it should allow you to pass once the success sound has played.

Composer: Globally install phpunit + optional dependencies

This is a quick one for myself. Copy/Paste instructions on how to install PHPUnit + optional dependencies via composer.

This installs 3.7.* as that’s what we use, bit just drop the = onwards to install the latest version

composer global require 'phpunit/phpunit=3.7.*'
composer global require 'phpunit/php-invoker'
composer global require 'phpunit/dbunit'
composer global require 'phpunit/phpunit-selenium'
composer global require 'phpunit/phpunit-story'
