    Hi,

    having a problem installing gd with /scripts/easyapache

    I checked over the build log and the only thing i can see is:

    -- Begin opt 'GD' --
    -- Begin dryrun test 'Find jpeg path for PHP 5' --
    dryrun test 'Find jpeg path for PHP 5' did not return true

    !! Dry run failed for 'Cpanel::Easy::PHP5::GD' skipping option !!


    can anyone help us out with this please? i am trying everything and recompiling apache which takes roughly 20 mins to find out this aint working is getting pretty annoying :P

    It's failing to find or install the JPEG development libraries. Depending upon your Operating System, you may be able to fix it by installing the libraries via your package management system. Look for a package named something like libjpeg-dev

    Thank you so much kenneth,

    I realise i should have came here first instead of flirting around on the net looking for answers!

    I reinstalled libjpeg libjpeg-devel libpng libpng-devel and all went fine after that except freetype, which then moaned, so removed that and all its dependencies, then installed freetype and all its deoendencies again and now i have GD!

    A long workaround but im kicking myself for not coming here first.

    Again, thank you sir, you are a true hero!
