YAML Question

PECL yaml in PHP7

Having some issues with pecl yaml in PHP7 (see below for error log). What I can see on: is that there's some RC's for 2.0 that is suppose to cover the issue... I'm currently running the command:

pecl install yaml && echo "" > /usr/local/etc/php/conf.d/ext-yaml.ini.

But guess this won't install the RC version. How do I install the RC? is there a parameter to supply maybe..?

I could google the following solution (not tested):

pear config-set preferred_state beta

But I guess that this will set a global beta state for all extensions. I only want to install this extension as beta..

Error log

So after some additional googling I found how to install by searching for how to install beta packages, instead of RC's as I first was looking for.. face-palm the correct command would be:

pecl install yaml-beta && echo "" > /usr/local/etc/php/conf.d/ext-yaml.ini
