Again, which Linux. And what error message do you get?

So far I've never had any problems installing GD using either
apt-get install libgd2-xpm # For Debian-based distributions

zypper install gd #SuSE based distros

Append a '-dev' at the end to install the development libraries too.

Hi pludi,

Thanks for your reply. I'm using Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.2.
Unfortunately, it gives the error message below when I just try to start the installation of GD:
type "perl Makefile.PL":

Notice: Type perl Makefile.PL -h for command-line option summary.

Configuring for libgd version 2.0.35.

From the above message, it showing that libgd header files is not found.
I got a bit confusing about the meaning of "Checking for stray libgd header files...none found."
I'm sure that the libgd header files is at /usr/local/include/gd.h
Besides that, I not sure about the reason of causing the "make test" result FAIL Smilie
Thanks for your any advice. I'm very appreciate it.

OK, so your problem isn't with the GD library itself, but the Perl wrapper. But why are you trying to install it from source, when that module should be available in the repository, as well as most of the other requirements? And even if you have to install them from source, why not use the CPAN module, which can take care of the dependencies:
perl -MCPAN -eshell

Also, make sure that you've got the development package for GD installed, this should be a simple
yum install gd-devel

Thanks a lot for your suggestion, pludi Smilie
After I try your command:
perl -MCPAN -eshell

It comes out this symbol:

What I should enter this times?

Sad to said that because our system is not registered with RHN and supported by them. Thus I can't use the another command that you suggested:
yum install gd-devel

Thanks again for your help, pludi.
