Newvie Question about GD library

P: n/a

I set up a new server a few months ago and I am using Fedora Core 3
withj Apache and php of course. But my GD library does not seem
to be installed. Since php was installed from an RPM is there
any easy way to ensure the GD library is installed? Or to add
it after the fact? Should it not be bundled with the rpm?

Well just for the fact of matter you should never use php from an rpm
unless it is an offical from php.net. Otherwise you are most likely
getting an older version.

However you can still put in modules by using phpize on the source of a
module like gd and then using ./configure --with-gd from the gd
extension source :)
