How to best manage legacy dependencies of packages?

I want to install OwnCloud on my Arch installation and it has php version 7 as a dependency. php7 is available as a signed package, but owncloud expects it to be called php.

How can I force pacman to install it under that name? Or what is the preferred way?

Those symlinks will cause problems with applications that expect latest php (8.08 -1 atm) .

Better doublecheck if you have those installed .


Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.
Did you use the guided installer ? If yes, I can't help you.
