Now if I do install:
$ sudo urpmi php-mcrypt To satisfy dependencies, the following packages are going to be installed: Package Version Release Dist DEpoch Arch (medium "main") lib64mcrypt4 2.5.8 25 omv 2015.0 x86_64 libmcrypt 2.5.8 25 omv 2015.0 x86_64 php-mcrypt 7.0.9 1 omv 2015.0 x86_64 419KB of additional disk space will be used.
then the command returns:
$ php -m | grep ctype PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'mcrypt.so' (tried: /usr/lib64/php/extensions/mcrypt.so (/usr/lib64/php/extensions/mcrypt.so: undefined symbol: spprintf), /usr/lib64/php/extensions/mcrypt.so.so (/usr/lib64/php/extensions/mcrypt.so.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)) in Unknown on line 0 ctype
Post-edit: Which looks exactly like the error you are getting.
