mga8, x64
Disclaimer: starting this from a a position of almost total ignorance about using php.

Before updating I tried a snippet from the README.md file but could not get it to work because there is either something missing from the php environment or the snippet needs to be embedded in a support framework.

$ cat basic.php
use Endroid\QrCode\QrCode;

$qrCode = new QrCode('Life is too short to be generating QR codes');

header('Content-Type: '.$qrCode->getContentType());
echo $qrCode->writeString();

$ php basic.php
PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught Error: Class "Endroid\QrCode\QrCode" not found in /home/lcl/qa/php-qrcode/basic.php:4
Stack trace:
#0 {main}
  thrown in /home/lcl/qa/php-qrcode/basic.php on line 4

Looked at the php-qrcode website but could not follow the installation instructions.  Is it safe to assume that Mageia has taken care of all that?

It looks like this needs the modules endroid and bacon at least.  Noting the PECL connection, a web search turned up the command pecl but no sign of that in /usr/bin or /usr/sbin.  So how do we get hold of all this extra stuff?  github does not have any pecl repositories yet.
Comment 4 Len Lawrence 2021-05-29 01:21:57 CEST
Tried the search engine on the PECL website.  No hits for qrcode, bacon or endroid.
Comment 5 Len Lawrence 2021-05-29 17:10:34 CEST
The update does not seem to have hit the mirrors yet even after switching to a specific mirror, second tier.
Comment 7 Marc Krämer 2021-05-31 18:04:08 CEST
strange.... is was almost certain I've uploaded 4.1.4 - I've done a reupload. Sorry for the confusion.
Build done - upload in progress.

It may be time to push this on.
It updates OK and the dependencies required by the basic.php script do exist.  There is just the problem of accessing them.
Comment 9 Dave Hodgins 2021-06-08 19:51:52 CEST
Agreed. Nothing requires php-qrcode, so stand alone testing is required.

Most of the dependencies can be found by creating a symlink,
"Endroid -> /usr/share/php/Endroid/" in the same directory as the
source code, but it's still failing when it tries to use them.

I think it's to do with the use of namespaces, but I don't know enough
about php to know how to use it properly in a stand alone application.

php-qrcode-4.1.4-1.mga8 from php-qrcode-4.1.4-1.mga8.src.rpm ok on Mageia 8
based on clean update install.

Validating the update.
