      Hi Waldo,

      This is a webalizer source installation.

      & I am running Redhat on my system.

      I read http://www.libpng.org/pub/png/pngfaq.html and so I recompiled the libraries again. It gave the same error again :(

      Any clues?

      your version of webalizer is not compiled against that version of libpng... is
      this a binary or a source installation?

      you might need to do a source install and recompile webalizer with the libs
      needed... this means that you may have to also install the compilation tools and
      libs... i haven't looked in the webalizer sources in years so i do not recall if
      there is/was a "top limit" on the versions of the libs...

      if this is a binary install, hopefully there are two flavors... one flavor being
      compiled dynamic so that the libs are picked up and the other flavor being
      static so your installed libs don't matter... static binaries will be larger
      since they compile all the libs into the binary... the major plus for this is
      that you don't have to futz around with the installed libs...

      what OS are you running on? how did you install webalizer?
