Bug #24936 FDFInitialize not defined
Submitted: 2003-08-04 13:10 UTC Modified: 2003-08-05 06:22 UTC
From: ceo at l-i-e dot com Assigned:
Status: Closed Package: FDF related
PHP Version: 4.3.2 OS: Mandrake 8
Private report: No CVE-ID:
 [2003-08-04 13:10 UTC] ceo at l-i-e dot com
Compiling from source Apache 1.3.28 + PHP 4.3.2 --with-fdftk=shared + installed and displayed by "ldconfig -v", yields:

/usr/local/apache/bin/httpd: relocation error:
/usr/lib/php/extensions/ undefined symbol: FDFInitialize

Attempting a static compilation yielded:

phpinfo() then showed me that FDF was there:
FDF Support  enabled
FdfTk Version  5.0

Alas, attempting to use fdf_create() yielded:

FDF Error: An internal FDF Library error occurred

Previously, using RPMs of PHP 4.2.3 and Apache 1.3.26 and then compiling the PHP from source and tossing it in the extensions directory, I was able to use FDF.

So I'm reasonably certain that the FDFTK is working correctly.

But I need fdf_open_string and fdf_enum_values from PHP 4.3+

A much more long-winded version of this problem is at:
