GD.pm install woes

X

Xevo

I've been trying to install GD.pm for a few days now, but to no avail.

I am using Fedora Core 2 with a P4 system.

I have installed libgd 2.0.28, Free Type 2.1.9, libpng 1.2.7, and
jpeg-6b. All were installed from source. I gave each it's own
directory under /usr/local/. There were no errors during the install
of any of them. I can use the scripts that get put into the bin
directory by libgd (such as webpng) so I know libgd is working.

My problem arrises when installing GD.pm. I am attempting to install
GD.pm 2.16. I am using the following args with Makefile.PL, although I
have tried many other variations (such as without "/lib" at the end of
the paths):

perl Makefile.PL -lib_gd_path /usr/local/gd/lib -lib_png_path
/usr/local/libpng/lib -lib_jpeg_path /usr/local/jpeg/lib -lib_ft_path
/usr/local/freetype2/lib -options "GD_JPEG,GD_FREETYPE,GD_PNG,GD_GIF"

This gives me the following output:


--------------------------------------------------
Configuring for libgd version 2.0.28.
Included Features: GD_JPEG,GD_FREETYPE,GD_PNG,GD_GIF
GD library used from: /usr/local/gd/lib
FreeType library used from: /usr/local/freetype2/lib
PNG library used from: /usr/local/libpng/lib
JPEG library used from: /usr/local/jpeg/lib

If you experience compile problems, please check the @INC, @LIBPATH
and @LIBS
arrays defined in Makefile.PL and manually adjust, if necessary.

Ok, so far so good! I then run make...

Still no problems that I can see. However, make test blows up...

I'm not sure exactly what is wrong, but it looks like it can't find
libgd.so.2. Any ideas on what is going on and how to fix this error?

Thanks,

I've had problem before too. Try an earlier version. 1.18 has gif suport.

I did this recently with GD 2.16 on OS X.

I had all the auxiliary libs (no Free Type here) installed into
standard locations (/usr/local/lib/). GD installed smoothly.

Try adding /usr/local/gd/lib to your LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

Thank you. Setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH helped a lot. I am now getting a
different, less verbose error when doing "make test TEST_VERBOSE=1".
It says it failed test 4. I don't know what test 4 is, so I'm not sure
where to go from here. As before, ./configure and make gave no errors.
