Description Ganesh Sittampalam 2002-08-30 00:45:17 UTC
Description of Problem:
There should be a dependency on libgd.so.1.8.4 (or the gd-1.8.4 
package) - with gd-1.8.3 /usr/lib/apache/libphp4.so has an unresolved symbol (I ran into this 
trying to upgrade slowly and carefully from RH7.1 to RH7.3)

Version-Release number of 
selected component (if applicable):
php-4.1.2-7.3.4 and gd-1.8.3-7

Install these packages

Steps to Reproduce:
Start Apache

Apache fails to load libphp4.so, complaining about unresolved symbol 

Expected Results:
Apache should have loaded

I don't know if the procedure of upgrading Redhat versions bit by bit is 
officially "supported", but it is absolutely essential for upgrading a server while trying to 
keep services running as much as possible,

Comment 1 Phil Copeland 2002-08-30 01:44:29 UTC
gdStringFT ? never heard of it. Doesn't even exist in the gd libs

[root@dhcp59-221 root]# nm  /usr/lib/libgd.* | grep -ic gdStringFT

[root@alpha php-4.1.2]# grep -irc gdStringFT *

Not directly referanced by anything in the php codebase either.
google has never heard of it either...

Sorry, I can find no referance to this gdStringFT in the codebase.

Oh wait, you did a jump from 7.1 to 7.3? how as an upgrade install? As a rpm
-Fvh against an RPMS directory?

Comment 2 Ganesh Sittampalam 2002-08-30 01:50:00 UTC
Sorry, my mistake, that should be gdImageStringFT. It's in the 7.3 version of gd but not the 7.1 

I upgraded by manually upgrading small dependency groups of RPMs at a time 
(actually using apt-rpm, but that just calls rpm -U to do its work).

Comment 3 Phil Copeland 2002-08-30 02:59:26 UTC
Ok so it's a BuildRequires: gd >= 1.8
it's added for errata but for now as you've already seen, just update gd


Comment 4 Ganesh Sittampalam 2002-08-30 03:05:38 UTC
surely it's "Requires: gd >= 1.8.4"? I wasn't trying to build it and the difference between 1.8.3 
and 1.8.4 is significant, since it's in 1.8.4 that the symbol appears.

Comment 5 Phil Copeland 2002-08-30 04:47:57 UTC
yes, sorry, not getting enuf sleep here...

Comment 6 Joe Orton 2002-09-26 08:51:26 UTC
Leaving this open whilst an errata is still pending.
