I think this is my wrong weekend with RedHat. After a HD failure of a test server running RH8, now I'm experiencing an annoying problem on RH9 and Apache 1.3.29 and PHP 4.3.4 : the course activity log chart does not display. The GD library detected is 2.x. Tried to change to 1.x, no result.
Zbigniew and Koem, many thanks for your suggestions. I checked TrueType support in PHP info but nothing showed me that TrueType are supported . Should it be evident in the "GD" section of PHPinfo?
Freetype library are installed with a RH9 RPM package. I think when making PHP4.3.4 using source download instead of a RPM package the freetype support has not been enabled, there is no evidence of --with-freetype in the configure command.
To enable Freetype within php, I think I could "make" again (pheraps using "make clean") PHP 4.3.4 sources but I never "remaked" over a working installation so I does not know wheter or not the system will be garbaged out.
