I'm getting a warning message indicating that /usr/include/gd.h does not
exist on my system at the point in the Jemboss install script
(install-jemboss-server.sh) that refers to the libpng and gd libraries.
I confirmed that gd.h does not exist on our server with a system-wide
search. I'm attempting to install EMBOSS/Jemboss v6.3.1 onto a server
running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 Server 64-bit (fully patched). I
have confirmed that I have the following relevant RPMs installed:
On our system, the following files are located in the indicated directories:
/usr/lib64/libpng.so (plus some other libpng files such as libpng12.so)
A search via our Red Hat Network subscription indicates that there are
no other gd RPMs available, such as gd-devel.
I've tried pointing the installation script at the /usr/lib64 directory
using the --with-pngdriver flag when requested, but this leads to
another warning saying that /usr/lib64/include/png.h does not exist.
I appreciate that I could just compile and install the libpng and gd
libraries from the two project's websites (in fact I've confirmed that
gd.h is present in the gd-2.0.35.tar.gz distribution), however, I would
prefer that Jemboss used the distro-provided libraries, as these will be
updated automatically via its package management system.
Many thanks for your help.
