Nagios GD related CGIs not working!


I am using Nagios, which is really great, but I just have one major problem! Anyone out there actually managed to get the StatusMap, Trends, Availability etc CGIs working properly? There's some good documentation on Nagios installs out there, but info on this bit seems to be sketchy at best. I have installed all the required libraries listed on and the configure script says it finds the GD libraries.

However, whenever I use these CGIs, the picture generated is just an empty window with an X in the corner (and this happens on ANY browser). What could be wrong?!?!

The box is running Slackware 9.0

Also, here's my output from an ldd statement...

root@lumpy:/usr/local/nagios/sbin# ldd statusmap.cgi => /usr/lib/ (0x40025000) => /usr/lib/ (0x40058000) => /lib/ (0x40066000) => /usr/lib/ (0x40089000) => /usr/lib/ (0x400b3000) => /lib/ (0x400d1000) => /usr/lib/ (0x40204000) => /usr/lib/ (0x4022f000)
/lib/ => /lib/ (0x40000000)

PLEASE someone help me on this!! It's such a great program, but I just need to get this part working!!

You will probably need to recompile GD. GD has several requiements in order to display the images properly. You'll need libjpeg, libpng, libungif and a couple of other things.
