I am using Fedora core 6 and downloaded rrdtool-1.2.12.tar.gz
from the website http://tobi.oetiker.ch/ then again installed manually
the following dependencies:

    *  libart_lgpl-2.3.11-2.i386.rpm
    * libart_lgpl-devel-2.3.11-2.i386.rpm
    * zlib-1.1.4-8.i386.rpm
    * zlib-devel-1.1.4-8.i386.rpm
    * libpng-1.2.2-16.i386.rpm
    * libpng-devel-1.2.2-16.i386.rpm
    * freetype-2.1.3-6.i386.rpm
    * freetype-devel-2.1.3-6.i386.rpm

I then configured it by running

./configure --disable-tcl
make install

Perl library was installed by running the following command:

make site-perl-install

The following is what I get when i run the perl script rrd_traffic.pl

Can't load '/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/RRDs/RRDs.so'
for module RRDs: librrd.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such
file or directory at
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi/DynaLoader.pm line 230.

Compilation failed in require at /usr/local/bin/rrd_traffic.pl line 8.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/local/bin/rrd_traffic.pl line 8.

Am I missing something?
