Hi, after successful installation of libgd2-xpm-dev I tried to run npm install stylus-sprite but I got the following output:

On Debian 5 (64bit) and node.js v0.6.8 node-gd compiles fine. I'm not sure if this is a node issue or node-gd issue that it doesn't compile on your system

I'm using node.js v0.6.8 too :/

Seems that there are other people that have issues with node-gd too.. taggon/node-gd#13

https://github.com/dudochkin-victor/node-gd it's worked at 0.6.6 and other ))))

It does not work on my Mac OS-X 10.3. I have libgd installed but I cannot install node-gd: https://gist.github.com/2508569

The version of node-gd and gd in npm are forks of the original project here: https://github.com/taggon/node-gd

Taggon's node gd branch has merged a pull request from dudochkin-victor.

andris9, I'm not sure why your's is compiling fine and mine isn't. I've installed node from source rather than using apt.

I'm afraid I can't help much with this one - I have no idea what is going on in this module or how it really works, the only reason I forked it was because Taggon's version was not listed on npm at the time I needed it for my stylus-sprite module. If the original module is now in npm and compatible with stylus-sprite, I'd happily change the dependency.

FWIW you can also specify tarball or git urls in your dependency's required version number/range field to fetch from those places instead of from within npm.

"gd":"https://github.com/dudochkin-victor/node-gd/tarball/master"

in your dependancies object will work like magic.
