I am running Redhat Fedora 3 and I cannot load GD perl. I have read the various posts on this problem and its not clear what has to be done. I have seen something about using gd1 not gd2 but what is the cpan call to load gd1
Suggestion from others suggests that using the system rpms for GD and GD-perl will satisfy the GD dependency correctly.
The problem was that the GD authors went from version 1 to 2 with a new API, and the Perl GD authors followed.
But the APIs are using the same module name with two different APIs. Idiots...
So you have to make sure you have a matching set.
At this date MOST of the distros have all moved to 2, so installing the system rpms for GD and GD-Perl solves most of these problems.
