[vox-tech] libpng problems...


I having a strange problem with the GD library for PHP- more specifically the 
libpng versions that are being used.

some background on the machine:
Debian (testing) recently upgraded from Debian (stable). Pentium II

When i try to create a PNG image with code known to work on another system, I 
get a server error, and the following lines in apache's error.log:
libpng warning: Application was compiled with png.h from libpng-1.0.12
libpng warning: Application  is  running with png.c from libpng-1.2.5
gd-png:  fatal libpng error: Incompatible libpng version in application and 

dpkg reports that i have the following libpng packages installed:
ii  libpng10-0     1.0.15-6       PNG library, older version - runtime
ii  libpng12-0      PNG library - runtime
ii  libpng2        1.0.15-6       PNG library, older version - runtime
ii  libpng3      PNG library - runtime

i have tried manually removing and adding various libpng packages, and all 
that i have accomplished thus far is rendering php-gd broken... i have 
reverted things to where they used to be, but PNG image creation still causes 
the above errors...

there must be some simple fix, but i can't seem to figure it out...

any ideas?

thanks in advance!
