This is a long tale of Woes so please bear with me.
I started off trying to install the current stable version of Gallery (gallery-1.3.1.tar) and after long and not so happy battles trying to get netpbm stable I gave up on this build. Through the course of this build attempt I learned a lot about netpbm and freetype so it wasn't a total loss. This effort stopped with having netpbm-10.10.tgz getting installed and still having lib errors when trying to process locally.
So being intrepid I decided to go after the latest build (Gallery v1.3.2-cvs-b10)... I've gotten this 'semi-functional' here: <!-- BBCode Start --><A HREF="http://eo.dyndns.info/gallery" TARGET="_blank">A geeks Gallery</A><!-- BBCode End -->
semi-functional can be defined as:
I can place images in a local server directory and then use the add photos menu action to add these photos... PS. Nice add to this build to recognize local paths!!! Caught that while going through the code! :grin:
While this is functional I cannot upload to the server as it times out and does not show any errors in the Apache logs. Also to alleviate all of the netpbm issues I was having I am running this particular version with ImageMagik. Seems to work quite well.
Another anomaly is that when I add more that one image from the directory, every image after the first is posted twice. I am trying to trace the code to see if I can find what is doing that but it's going slow as this is my first look at the code and I am still unclear on all of the variable conventions.
I am not sure if I have issues with the httpd.conf file (I am running Apache 2) and I am also running the latest PHP 4.0 engine... It's stable with everything else and seems quite benign. I run a few other apps on the server for log analysis and counter provision.
The gallery is the best I have seen so far but I would love to start to resolve these issues. I am going to try the latest remote application after supper but I thought I would post this so maybe I might get some help before I dive back in.
Thanks for the replies in advance!
