 Cliff Bergman 2001-02-14 18:10:06 UTC From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-22 i686) When running pdftex on a file that includes a graphic image in png format, I get the following error message: libpng error: Application must be recompiled; version 1.0.6 was incompatible It appears that pdftex must be recompiled against a newer version of the libpng library. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a latex file that includes \usepackage{graphicx} 2. after \begin{document}, include a line of the form \includegraphics{figure.png}, where figure.png is a picture in png format. (I created mine using fig2dev.) 3. run pdflatex on the resulting file Actual Results: In addition to the error message listed above, here is another error message that I get:png_create_read_struct() failed Expected Results: Well, of course, pdftex should run and create a pdf file.  Tim Waugh 2001-02-14 18:15:54 UTC Yes. :-( rpm --rebuild tetex-*.src.rpm fixes the problem I think. In any case, the libpng that tetex carries around with it is no longer used, and fixed packages are in rawhide.  Cliff Bergman 2001-02-16 22:24:06 UTC Hi. I tried rebuilding tetex according to your instruction. That did not solve the problem. (Same error message.) I also tried installing libpng.1.0.8-5.rpm and libpng-devel.1.0.8-5.rpm however I got dependancy errors. Actually, I'm unclear why I would need a newer version of libpng anyway. Did my rebuild actually recompile pdftex? The date on the binary is Jul 19, 2000. (The date on libpng is Jul 27.)  Tim Waugh 2001-02-19 22:19:29 UTC Please update your tetex-dvilj, tetex-xdvi, tetex-dvips, tetex-fonts, tetex-afm, tetex-latex and tetex packages to at least 1.0.7-12, where this problem is fixed (rawhide.redhat.com).
