[Snort-users] ACID : PHP GD error

You didn't compile gd support into php.  Recompile your php module with 
gd support and it should work.  From the php directory type ./configure 
--with-gd   as part of your configure options.

I myself have run into this problem and haven't had a chance to try the 
above yet.  I did find this in their troubleshooting docs (I think).

Hopefully I'll have some time today to try it also :-)

Oh.. and if you don't have the gd library loaded then you will need to 
download/install it.  I believe it comes by default in most linux 
distros (I'm running redhat 6.2 on this particular system)
