Hi all,
I've fedora core 4  box with apache 2.2.4 ,php 5.2.3, perl 5.8.8 and mod_perl 2.3.x
I've problem with php development with gd so I'm installing it again from the begining and read that I should install the following libraries as well so that it works fine (zlib, libpng, freetyp2 and jpeg  so I downloaded them and start install them
with the same sequence I wrote their names. when I started make ./configure for freetype2 I got this error message
make: *** No rule to make target `setup'.  Stop.
can you please help me to have it setup correctly
any help  is welcomed
best regards
HG

hi ravenpl,
thanks for reply
here is the syntax I wrote and the error again arise
[root@shang gd-2.0.11]# cd /home/hatem/youtub/graphics_library/freetype/freetype-2.3.5.tar.gz_FILES/freetype-2.3.5 &&
> ./configure --prefix=/usr/local && make check && make install
make: *** No rule to make target `setup'.  Stop.
[root@shang freetype-2.3.5]# ./configure
make: *** No rule to make target `setup'.  Stop.
[root@shang freetype-2.3.5]#

I tried ./configure alone too but it still  the same
best regards

hi ravenpl, thanks again for the idea

>>>Also most of them You may install from fedora
>>>yum install zlib-devel libpng-devel libjpeg-devel freetype-devel
unfortunately my administrator is blocking my ip by the ISA firewall and the pix firewall too that's why I can't use yum

so if you can help me in the setup from the source that would be greate

best regards
