Bug#834063: gosa: GOsa setup complains about missing php mysql module even if php-mysql is installed

Package: gosa
Version: 2.7.4+reloaded2-12
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable


I tried to update the GOsa configuration in Debian-LAN and started the web interface 
without '/etc/gosa.conf' in place.  The installation check complains about missing 
mysql support and recommends to install and activate the MySQL PHP module.
However, after installing all suspicious packages, for example php-mysql, the issue 
remains and the setup process can't be continued and finished.

So for users that doo not have a useable configuration available, GOsa seems to be 
useless.  (Therefore severity grave, feel free to adjust).  With the Debian-EDU 
configuration in place, things seem to work fine. 

Best regards,
