I'm not very good with figuring this wtuff out, so I'm hoping someone
can offer some advice.
We need to install some ability to create line charts from Perl. So,
I'm trying to install DBIx::Chart. One of the requirements is to
install GD 1.19.
I tried installing that, but when I get to the make command I get
/usr/bin/perl GD/Image.pm.PLS GD/Image.pm
Extracting Image.pm (with variable substitutions)
cp GD/Polyline.pm blib/lib/GD/Polyline.pm
cp qd.pl blib/lib/qd.pl
cp GD/Image.pm blib/lib/GD/Image.pm
cp GD.pm blib/lib/GD.pm
AutoSplitting blib/lib/GD.pm (blib/lib/auto/GD)
cp GD/Simple.pm blib/lib/GD/Simple.pm
cp GD/Polygon.pm blib/lib/GD/Polygon.pm
/usr/bin/perl /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/ExtUtils/xsubpp -typemap /usr/lib/

GD.xs: In function `XS_GD__Image_stringFT':
GD.xs:2211: error: `gdFTEX_DISABLE_KERNING' undeclared (first use in
GD.xs:2211: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
GD.xs:2211: error: for each function it appears in.)
I have no clue what all that means or how to solve it. Can anyone
help? It would really help me out a lot.
Re: Installing Perl Module
The C compiler is complaining about some variables, functions or
defines or whatever not being found. Tou find in the README for
the GD module:
If this module fails to compile and link, you are probably using an
older version of libgd. Symptoms of this problem include errors
about functions not being recognized in the gd.h header file, and
undefined symbols from the linker. If you are having this type of
error, please REMOVE all versions of libgd, gd.h from your system
and reinstall libgd 2.0.28 or higher. Do not contact Lincoln for
help until you have done this.
Your symptoms look exactly like described here. So as a first step
I would do what's recommended, i.e. install the newest version of
libgd available from http://www.boutell.com/gd /.
