My installation of magento is fine except for magento connect. I have not been able to install anything using it

I always get -

the install starts up and runs to this point

#11 /home/werelaxc/public_html/ Maged_Pear->runHtmlConsole(’install’, Array, Array)
#12 /home/werelaxc/public_html/ Maged_Model_Pear->installPackage(Array)
#13 /home/werelaxc/public_html/ Maged_Controller->pearInstallPackagePostAction(’magento-communi...’)
#14 /home/werelaxc/public_html/ Maged_Controller->dispatch()
#15 /home/werelaxc/public_html/ Maged_Controller::run()
#16 {main}

Then stalls. when I go back to admin (30sec to 30 min later wink ) I get the popup window with the warning - There are PEAR processes running.

there is nothing in the /downloader/pearlib/download and I cleared the pear.ini file
