Question problem using MRTG in RedHat Linux 8.0

I had problem using the MRTG software.
I have completely installed gd,zlib,gcc,perl and libpng packages in my sysyem.
Also I installed Apache web server (httpd-2.0.40-8), Domain Name Server
(bind-9.2.1-9) and SNMP(net-snmp-5.0.1-6). I configured the SNMP as version 1.
I configured the mrtg.cfg using the command

cfgmaker --global 'WorkDir:/var/www/html/mrtg'
--global "Options[_]:growright,bits" --output /etc/mrtg.cfg

Then after I ran MRTG by

mrtg /etc/mrtg/mrtg.cfg

I got the error

gd-png: fatal libpng error: Invalid filter type specified
gd-png error: setjmp returns error condition

The png files that are used to display the traffic conditions in the html page
are not being successfully created.

I would be grateful to anyone who helps me out of this problem
or tries to do the same.
