Re: [PHP] GD installation - Simple Question

2002-12-12 Thread info
Hello Phillip, hello Sean,

thank you very much, for answering the question of --with-gd  -  compiling.

I am not using 4.3 . I did it with php-4.2.3

Did I got it right - to use the bundled-gd I have to use the
compiling-flag:
--enable-gd
??

But when I run ./configure --help there isn´t shown any flag --enable-gd
just --enable-gd-native-ttf to use GD: Enable TrueType string function.

Any hints???

Oliver Etzel




To use the bundled gd just do: --enable-gd

Note that 4.3.0 is the first distro that includes a
bundled GD.  Also note that as of 4.3.0 just doing
--with-gd will also use the bundled GD.  Before this,
--with-gd (no directory specified) would look for a
local copy.  That seems odd yes but theory is it
means more people will use the preferred bundled GD
now. To use a non-bundled, you must specify the path
so: --with-gd=/path/to/gd/dir

Note: It's strongly recommended to use the bundled GD.

Regards,
Philip

p.s. 4.3.0-RC3 came out today! :)

  simple question:
 
  I´ve heard that it is possible to compile php with dg-support on two
ways
  1) first way: Distribution dependant with the gd-files and libraries,
eg. gd.c, gd.lo, gd.o
  coming with the distribution of the compiled php-4.x-tarball
  compiled the follwing way:
 
  ./configure .. --with-gd 
 
 
  2) second way: You can compile the newest Distribution from GD, eg.
gd-2.0.8
 
  compiling gd-2.0.8 this way
  ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/gd ...
  eg. under  /usr/local/gd
 
  and the compile php-4.x this way
  ./configure  --with-gd=/usr/local 
 
 
   Did I got that right ?

 almost

 I think that the value you use for 'prefix=' on gd should be the same as
 the value for 'with-gd='

 and its probably best to install gd in /usr/local so that the libraries
 are in an already known location.

 like this

 ./configure --prefix=/usr/local
   eg. under  /usr/local

 and the compile php-4.x this way
 ./configure  --with-gd=/usr/local

 if you do this - be aware that you will have two versions of gd
 installed - this shouldn't cause any problems but don't forget you have
 two versions - and if you install more software make sure it finds the
 right version.

 - you can always remove the ditro version - but eg rpm may complain
 about dependency problems as it won't know about your /usr/local version.

No, GD is only bundled as of PHP 4.3.0.
