Description of problem:
when I run a php script which contains the imagettftext command, I get no 
output. The httpd error log contains the following:

core_output_filter: writing data to the network

errors are logged and the correct image is output to the browser.

Comment 1 Artie Ball 2002-10-30 03:45:07 UTC
Solution found.  When specifying the font file to use, the path to the font 
file must be absolute.  i.e. /var/www/html/project/arial.ttf  not just
