My main problem is that I can't get the truetype string function into gd since version 4.0.5 (4.0.4pl1 works for me). On our systems gd 184 is available and freetype 1.3 and 2.x are installed. Our server park containts about 36 servers, all installed with apache1320/php404pl1.

I don't know if these problems are related, but I can't get 406 work on a new machine with slack80.

My error:
root@s0048:/usr/src/php-4.0.6# apachectl start
Syntax error on line 205 of /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf:
Cannot load /usr/local/apache/libexec/ into server: /usr/local/apache/libexec/ undefined symbol: TT_Open_Face
/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl start: httpd could not be started

My configstring:
./configure --enable-versioning --with-apxs=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs --with-gd --with-jpeg-dir=/usr/local --with-zlib --enable-track-vars --enable-ttf --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql --enable-gd-native-ttf --with-png-dir=/usr/lib --with-freetype-dir=/usr/local --with-ttf-dir=/usr/local/include/freetype --with-xpm-dir=/usr/X11R6

These errors don't mean much to me. What I really would like to know is what version of freetype should I use (1.3 or 2.x). If I use 2.x gd won't compile afther I edited the Makefile.

Kind regards,

Make sure you have TrueType installed correctly.  Also, try
looking at the GD and PHP documentation.

Use the freetype 1.x libs. And ask further install
questions on
