Installation fails at requirements check stage, with the table below. Note
1) Error message contains HTML tags
2) The list of items was blank at first I think, subsequently shows fileinfo (I had to fix file permissions)
3) I have installed all the PHP items in my OpenSuse 13.1 & still won't fix issue - includes fileinfo, mysql, several xml and json extensions.

This is a regression because I could install alpha12

Minor point: The Status column (below) is not shown on screen, it is replaced by nice green and red colours. There were carriage returns after the word OK when I copied and pasted here, which I have removed. Issue status "Mildly irritating"

OpenSuse 13.1
Apache2 2.4.10
PHP 5.4.20
Drupal 8.0.0.alpha14
Drupal Path http://testserver/d8t1/core/

This may have been a quirk, since I could not reproduce exactly. I had several WSOD trying to refine the issue, and installing php5-ctype fixed that. I have documented that on the PHP requirements page.

HTML codes in message is still an issue, and WSOD with no explanation is even more unhelpful.

If I'm not mistaken this is already fixed and now a duplicate of #2346287: Installer requirements errors escaped HTML in variables., if not please reopen. Thanks!
