  • I know you need, and this probably won't help you much, but I thought I'd just throw out the comment that Imager is much much easier to install on all platforms (I just installed it on Strawberry to confirm).

    If at all possible, I'd highly recommend using Imager for graphics stuff, if it can do what you want.

    But then GD is probably just a dependency for your real need, so odds are for you that comment doesn't help.
  • But the ActiveState build status page says

    ActiveState isn't the only PPM repository. There are many of them, for example: University of Winnipeg [] and Bribes [], as well as smaller repositories with PPMs for wxPerl []. There's a module on CPAN, PPM::Repositories [] to provide a full list. FWIW, I just installed GD from the Winnipeg repository without any problems.

    I don't really like the idea of massive Perl distributions including a compiler - I think binary packaging is a better solution, even for *nix operating

    • Thanks. I already found that module a while back. Works very well too, I added everything I found.
      It's very interesting that you were able to install GD, my ppm should have found it too!
