GD Library path?


i'm trying to install using cpan and i get this
Code:
Removing previously used /root/.cpan/build/GD-2.12
 
  CPAN.pm: Going to build L/LD/LDS/GD-2.12.tar.gz
 
 
NOTICE: This module requires libgd 2.0.12 or higher.
        it will NOT work with earlier versions.
        See www.cpan.org for versions of GD that are compatible
        with earlier versions of libgd.
 
        If you are using Math::Trig 1.01 or lower, it has a bug that
        causes a "prerequisite not found" warning to be issued.  You may
        safely ignore this warning.
 
Type perl Makefile.PL -h for command-line option summary
I'm running on fedora core 1, can somebody tell me how do i find the path for the GD library and how do i know which version it is?
and where can i find libgd 2.0.12 or higher version? i looked on google but there's only debian packages?

thanks in advance

Use:
rpm -qi gd
to find out if gd is installed and what version it is.

If gd is installed then use:
rpm -ql gd
to find out where it is installed.

You can download the tarball for gd 2.0.22 here;
http://www.boutell.com/gd/

If you want to compile the tarball into a rpm then use checkinstall:
