newer version of the parser installed,yet get the older one itlself,hows it possible?

Hi all,

I downloaded a XML parser lib from
Its the "libxml2",but i am having trouble initializing it(or so it feels)...I kind of need it badly as the OSE version of the virtualbox 1.6.2 will not install unless i have one

The version was 2.6.3...
The min requirement from virtualbox was 1.6.23
But even after an installation when i try to install virtualbox it still show me that i need a higher version of libxml2.
I am very sure that i have downloaded the higher version,reason being that the download link states its a ver 2.6.3
So how do i counter this?

Is there a way to check the version of my newly installed parser?

xml_set_character_data_handler - Set up character data handler

bool xml_set_character_data_handler (resource $parser, callable $handler) DESCRIPTION
Sets the character data handler function for the XML parser $parser. PARAMETERS
o $parser - A reference to the XML parser to set up character data handler function. o $handler -$handler is a string containing the name of a function that must exist when xml_parse(3) is called for $parser. The function named by $handler must accept two parameters: handler (resource $parser, string $data) o $parser - The first parameter, parser, is a reference to the XML parser calling the handler. o $data - The second parameter, $data, contains the character data as a string. Character data handler is called for every piece of a text in the XML document. It can be called multiple times inside each frag- ment (e.g. for non-ASCII strings). If a handler function is set to an empty string, or FALSE, the handler in question is disabled. Note Instead of a function name, an array containing an object reference and a method name can also be supplied. RETURN VALUES
Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure. PHP Documentation Group XML_SET_CHARACTER_DATA_HANDLER(3)
