gd - C library for the dynamic creation of images ChangeLog


# GD 2.3.3
# ========
# As this is written, the GD home page URL redirects to
#, which is the home page URL above

# Slackware 13.37, 14.0, 14.1: gd 2.0.35
# Slackware 14.2: gd 2.2.1
# Slackware 15.0: gd 2.3.3

# If you want to uninstall GD or clean up files from an old version before
# installing a new one, skip down to the bottom for instructions.  If
# your previous GD is installed under /usr/local, definitely do that.

# Prerequisites:
# pkg-config
# XFree86 or and Xpm (optional)
# glibc's iconv or libiconv
# zlib (optional, but recommended)
# libpng (optional, but recommended)
# FreeType (optional)
# Raqm (optional)
# Fontconfig (optional)
# libjpeg or libjpeg-turbo (optional)
# libimagequant (optional)
# libtiff 4.x
# libwebp
# libheif >= 1.7.0
# libavif >= 0.8.2

# GitHub releases 2.3.3

# Get the tarball
test -f installed/libgd-2.3.3.tar.xz && mv installed/libgd-2.3.3.tar.xz .
test ! -f libgd-2.3.3.tar.xz &&

# Extract the source
# (be careful here if you have anything named gd-somethingelse-*)
mkdir -p -m 0700 ~/src
cd ~/src
find -maxdepth 1 -type d -name "gd-?.*" -exec rm -r {} \;
find -maxdepth 1 -type d -name "libgd-*" -exec rm -r {} \;

# You can use CMake instead of configure if you prefer

# If you have FreeType, Xpm, and others installed but don't want to include
# support for those, pass --without-freetype, --without-xpm, etc. to
# configure.  See './configure --help' for more options.

# Configure the build for 64-bit
test $(uname -m) = 'x86_64' &&
test -d /usr/lib64 && ./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib64

# Configure the build for anything else
test $(uname -m) != 'x86_64' && ./configure --prefix=/usr

# Build it

# Become root to clean up old files and to install it

# Remove old Slackware package, if there is one
test -x /sbin/removepkg && /sbin/removepkg gd

# Next I blow away shared library files just before running 'make install'
# to ensure that old, unused files aren't left lying around taking up space,
# causing problems.  If you run a multi-user system where users may be
# running programs linked with libgd, or if you run a daemon that uses it
# (like Apache + PHP), you may want to skip that part and clean up any old
# files manually after you're done upgrading.
# lsof may be some help with that.
# (lsof /usr/lib*/*)
# Remove old versions of library files
# ...or don't and check dates after 'make install'
test -d /usr/lib64 && ( cd /usr/lib64 ; rm -f libgd.a* )
( cd /usr/lib ; rm -f libgd.a* )

# Install it
make install

# Become yourself again

# Save the source for later
mkdir -p -m 0700 installed
rm -f installed/gd-*.tar.* installed/libgd-*.tar.* installed/gd.README
mv libgd-2.3.3.tar.xz installed/

# If you ever want to uninstall GD, this should do it:
test -x /sbin/removepkg && /sbin/removepkg gd
test -d src/gd-* && ( cd src/gd-* ; make uninstall )
test -d src/gd-libgd && ( cd src/gd-libgd ; make uninstall )
