the graph doen't show up in tiki-g-admin_graph.php
cause to wrong build path.
CONSTANTS 'GALAXIA_PROCESSES' has been used to
construct the img path which points to an absolute file
path. I change that to 'lib/Galaxia/processes' and it
works again.

patch attached.

    Hi, I don't use Galaxia, could you mention the versions
    affected by this bug?
    Thanks for sending this patch anyway, hopefully someone else
    can review it.

    It's the latest version from HEAD(CVS):
    $Header: /cvsroot/tikiwiki/tiki/tiki-g-admin_graph.php,v 1.3

    after some further investigation & using of tikiwiki/Galaxia
    it seems like the problem should probably be adressed in a
    better way by manually defining the GALAXIA_LIBRARY Constant
    cause then it wouldn't contain the whole absolute path as
    returned by 'dirname(__FILE__)';

    config.php:
    ...
    // Directory containing the Galaxia library, e.g. lib/Galaxia
    if (!defined('GALAXIA_LIBRARY')) {
    define('GALAXIA_LIBRARY', dirname(__FILE__));
    }
    ....
    define('GALAXIA_PROCESSES', GALAXIA_LIBRARY . '/processes');

    The constant GALAXIA_PROCESSES should be set in
    /lib/Galaxia/config.php, together with all the other Galaxia
    constants. This makes sure the library remains free of
    hardcoded paths.
    That's also the place where you should define the path to
    the Graphviz dot program. There's only one pitfall for the
    Windows guys out there: make sure there are NO spaces your
    paths. Graphviz doesn't like'em. That's no spaces for the
    path to the Graphviz programs and no spaces in the tiki
    installation dir... Unless your looking for trouble ;-)

    hmm, i probable wasn't clear on that last one... sorry for
    that. The only reasen why the graph isn't going to get
    generated is when there are spaces in some path on a windows
    system. I already comitted something like you patch some
    time ago, but it got reverted, for good reason. This should
    probably be mensioned in the docs somewhere...

    time is always against us...

    Halon, the problem is not spaces in the path, the problem is
    that GALAXIA_PROCESSES refers to a server-absolute path, for
    example, on my Linux box this path is
    '/home/httpd/my_website_dir/html/lib/Galaxia/processes'.

    This absolute server address is useless to a user's web
    browser, it needs it specified relative to the webserver,
    like '/lib/Galaxia/processes'.

    Perhaps a new constant is needed, for web-relative paths.
    In the absence of that, a hard coded path will have to do.

    Why is this still broken in the 1.9 distro?
