Subject: GD v2.35 won't build on RHEL 4 x86_64
Download (untitled) / with headers

Hello, I cannot get GD to build on RHEL 4. I apologize because I am sure you get this all the time. Can anyone help or have any advice as what to do? It seems from the changelog that GD supports x86_64 architecture. I have read the README and I have the requirements (via RPM packages): perl 5.8.5 libgd 2.0.28 libpng 1.2.7 zlib freetype 2.1.9 libjpeg 6b x11 6.8.2 (which has xpm) I checked with the Red Hat website that the gd rpm and library was built with all of these: gd RPM built with: /sbin/ldconfig <-- freetype <-- jpeg <-- png <-- xpm <-- zlib rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1 rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1 Here is the output of the make: [root@dla2 GD-2.35]# perl Makefile.PL NOTICE: This module requires libgd 2.0.28 or higher. If you are using Math::Trig 1.01 or lower, it has a bug that causes a "prerequisite not found" warning to be issued. You may safely ignore this warning. Type perl Makefile.PL -h for command-line option summary Where is libgd installed? [/usr/lib] Please choose the features that match how libgd was built: Build JPEG support? [y] Build PNG support? [y] Build FreeType support? [y] Build GIF support? [y] Build support for animated GIFs? [y] Build XPM support? [y] If you experience compile problems, please check the @INC, @LIBPATH and @LIBS arrays defined in Makefile.PL and manually adjust, if necessary. Checking if your kit is complete...

This is a known ELF problem, we cannot fix. You need shared libraries for all libgd dependencies and libgd itself, when you compile a dynamic perl modules using it. You only have a static libgd. -- Reini Urban
