libpng errors in Side Effects Houdini Apprentice


Hello Everyone,
I'm getting lots of libpng errors when running Side Effects Software Houdini Apprentice under Slackware64-current (gcc 4.4.3 glibc 2.11.1 and libpng 1.4.1.) See attached screenshots. Houdini is compiled with gcc 4.3 as the highest version.

My questions are: Is gcc 4.4.3 incompatible with gcc 4.3 and does this cause the libpng errors in the UI or is this due to libpng? Running houdini with the following makes no difference:
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib64/libpng12.so /opt/hfs10.0.595/bin/houdini

Does anybody have any tips how I should proceed? Should I revert back to Slackware64 13.0?

Houdini Apprentice can be downloaded from www.sidefx.com

Regards,
Mats

I had a similar problem compiling xbmc on Slackware64-current with libpng-1.4.1. I was able to compile it by booting an earlier version of -current that still had libpng-1.2.7.

As mlangdn said, you can compile it with an older version of libpng. Still, if you happent to haven't an earlier version of the -current branch, you can force compile with -lpng12 on de LDFLAGS or, if the program's configure has the option --with-png, you can set the path with

Code:
--with-png=/path/to/libpng12
The other option is to look for a patch for the libpng14.

I seem to have libpng 1.2.43 installed as well as 1.4.1. Doesn't LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib64/libpng12.so load libpng 1.2?

I'm afraid I don't have access to the full Houdini source code so I cannot compile the program myself.
