PHP With GD Support....

Has anyone had problems getting PHP 5.1.6 to build on their 64bit Suse box?

I have all the needed devel packages installed and try to run…

./configure --with-gd=/usr/lib64 --with-jpeg-dir=/usr/lib64 --with-png-dir=/usr/lib64 --with-xpm-dir=/usr/X11R6/lib64 --with-zlib-dir=/usr/lib64 --with-freetype-dir=/usr/lib64 --enable-gd-native-ttf

But get this error everytime…

checking for GD support… yes
checking for the location of libjpeg… /usr/lib64
checking for the location of libpng… /usr/lib64
checking for the location of libXpm… /usr/X11R6/lib64
checking for FreeType 1.x support… no
checking for FreeType 2… /usr/lib64
checking for T1lib support… no
checking whether to enable truetype string function in GD… yes
checking whether to enable JIS-mapped Japanese font support in GD… no
configure: error: libjpeg.(a|so) not found.

Running a "find / -name libjp*
Show the and .a files in /usr/lib64

Any ideas?

Hey Jim,

Why not use the packages provided by SUSE? Then you can just install the php5-gd package and be done with it. And you get the benefit of having a tested version of everything.

I’m still stuck on this if anyone has some ideas…

I would like to but I have APC, ImageMagick up and running along with a new version of PHP 5.2. Going with the packages means 5.0.4 and having to get APC re-installed. Not to mentioned "uninstalling" the compiled version. Is there even an uninstall option for removing compile programs?

It just seems that if I can get this one hiccup, I can have just about everything up and running.
