The texi2pdf command which runs pdftext is built against the wrong version
of the libpng library. The error states 1.0.6 while the RPM is 1.0.8 and
libpng detects this a dies.
This is a standard 7.0 release with the one texinfo.tex upgrade which is a
rather nice upgrade (hint hint).

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get the lastest texinfo.tex from
   and replace in
2. Create a simple PNG image called test.png using gimp.
3. Create the texinfo as stated in the additional info section below.
4. Run `texi2pdf test.texinfo

Actual Results:  $ texi2pdf test.texinfo
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159-13d (Web2C 7.3.1)
Babel <v3.6Z> and hyphenation patterns for american, french, german,
ngerman, i
talian, nohyphenation, loaded.
Loading texinfo [version 2000-12-11.07]: Basics, pdf,
(/usr/share/texmf/pdftex/plain/misc/pdfcolor.tex) fonts, page headings,
tables, conditionals, indexing, sectioning, toc, environments, defuns,
cross references, (/usr/share/texmf/tex/plain/dvips/epsf.tex) localization,
and turning on texinfo input format.))libpng error: Application must be
recompiled; version 1.0.6 was incompatible

Error: pdftex (file ct-logo.png): png_create_read_struct() failed
/usr/bin/texi2dvi: pdftex exited with bad status, quitting.
/usr/bin/texi2dvi: see test.log for errors.

Expected Results:  A nice PDF with the image. RH 6.1 works well.

$ cat test.texinfo
\input texinfo   @c -*-texinfo-*-
