I am new to DreamHost and I switched because I need to install MathTex. The creator of MathTex is on DreamHost and the package appeared better than my previous shared hosting package. I'm still deciding if I'll stay with DreamHost and this would go a long way.
MathTex (http://www.forkosh.com/mathtex.html) requires a latex package and dvipng. DreamHost already has latex but not dvipng. In order to compile dvipng you need libgd and libkpathsea. Both of which are available at /usr/lib and /usr/include. However, the configure command for dvipng consistently returns the error can't find/use libkpathsea.
I have not put dvipng under the texmf tree (not sure where this would go but I assume top level). I have simply tried to compile under one of my domain folders.
Thank you, in advance, for your help
Anyone know of a solution?
