I normally work on CentOS and Ubuntu machines but I have been busting my head against the wall trying to install libgd2 on Suse (Suse Enterprise Server 11. x86_64). Plenty of google searches point me to install gd but that's version 1. Even a zypper search "gd" only yields "gd - A drawing library for programs that use PNG and JPEG Output". Ultimately I am trying to install Perl's GD module but it depends on libgd2 and trying to install from source is also throwing error after error. Mostly ...
configure.ac:51: warning: macro `AM_ICONV' not found in library configure.ac:51: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_ICONV If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow. See the Autoconf documentation. Failed
On CentOS and Ubuntu installing libgd2 is a one liner and that's that but unfortunately I'm stuck with trying to get it to work on Suse.
Has anyone ever installed libgd2 on a Suse box before? Or if you know the magic command for zypper that would be great too.
Many thanks! Janie
