Default Upgrading php-GD for Debian / Ubuntu


I have bin trying to update php-gd to 2.0.34 for a long time. Browsing and browsing
the internet to find a solution to solw my problem.

Finally i did find the answer to update php-GD on my Debian server.

Her is a HowTo.

Same issue here with Ubuntu Server 8.04.1 and PHP5. The following worked for me. It will install a GD pre-compiled
working version. It is a complete bundled (forked) GD libraries:

If not already done removing your current GD package and its configurations.

sudo apt-get --purge remove

apt-get remove php-gd

Adding 2 lines to your file /etc/apt/sources.lst

deb http://packages.dotdeb.org stable all
deb-src http://packages.dotdeb.org stable all

Updating your current apt-get list

apt-get update

Installing working GD package.

apt-get install php5-gd
It will complain about non-authenticated sources, just ignore, it will also update some additional php libs.

When prompt select keep_current modified php.ini

5. Restarting Apache

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

NOTE : Please comment out #deb http://packages.dotdeb.org stable all #deb-src http://packages.dotdeb.org stable all after you update the GD. If not your server is F***T..
