i bet thats where the problem is coming from. i figure that the libpng versions that i installed and that of the mrtg package were different. i have installed version 1.0.5 instead of at least 1.2.5 of that on the mrtg package.
and again i noticed that maybe the last step of the installation of the libpng wasnt done right coz i done this:
If you don't have libpng installed
gunzip -c libpng-*.tar.gz |tar xf -
mv libpng-* libpng
make -f scripts/makefile.std CC=gcc ZLIBLIB=../zlib ZLIBINC=../zlib
rm *.so.* *.so
but the the second to the last statement containing the rm gave this:
[root@mail libpng]# rm *.so.* *.so
rm: cannot lstat `*.so.*': No such file or directory
rm: cannot lstat `*.so': No such file or directory
i would want to assume that ur a guru in this mrtg stuff, can u give me a good guide to this thing well coz i wud want to be able to generate graphs for different machines, put them on a webserver (apache), have the database of the various machines (clients) something like MySQL and PHP etc.
thanks for everything and awaiting ur reply
