MCPAN fails to install a few modules


I am running RH Ent. I have loaded in Perl v5.8.0 and it fails to install these modules
GD
GD::Graph
GD::Text::Align
Chart::Base

Here is a sample of the error I get:

/usr/bin/perl -MCPAN -e 'install "GD"'

make: *** [GD.o] Error 1
/usr/bin/make -- NOT OK
Running make test
Can't test without successful make
Running make install
make had returned bad status, install seems impossible

It will not even let me force the install of these modules. Any suggestions?

How can I check the version of libgd to make sure that the MCPAN can use it properly for Function calls and so forth?

I found I had an older version of libgd. I upgraded that library and it allowed MCPAN to install said modules.

Now the modules are not creating the graphs when I run the report... It say internal error, so I am going back to the begining and see what I come up with.

I am starting not to like bugzilla. lol kidding...

have a look in
~/.cpan/build/<package in question>
and run
make
make test
manually to see the actual errors.


Cheers,

I did as you suggested but no errors were listed.

I was able to get them installed, just now whne I run reports with bugzilla it will not show the graphical reports. It says internal error on the image. I am at a loss and have no idea.

How could I go about removing all Perl libraries and re-installing latest perl dist. ?
