I am running LaTex in my website and just moved from centOS5 to centOS6. The Drupal module (Drutex) I am using indicates this error

Executing "dvipng" failed. Either dvipng isn't installed or the "dvipng" executable is not in one of the search paths. You cannot use dvipng for rendering images (check the conversion method above).

How I understand it is that dvipng is not yet installed. If it is not installed, can anyone give me a link on where to download dvipng and a link on hot to install it. If it is already installed then what is the path for it, I am currently using /usr/bin/dvipng that path works fine when I was in CentOS5...

I hope the links I asked are not too much, thanks guys...

dvipng should be installed on your machine now.

I don't know but the error has been gone and I received a feedback that dvipng is working properly.

Yes WebFaction installed dvipng on your machine and this is why the error is gone.
