GIFs not displayed when made by gimp ?

Can anyone tell me why Opera 6.12 does not display GIF's made by the Gimp? All it displays is the alt text, If i select image properties I get 0x0 pixels, 0 bits per pixel ?

However if I browse the web it shows GIFs no problem.

That's odd. Send me a sample gif (off list) and I'll see what I can make out.

It works fine with my Opera (5.1 I think) and my GIMP under Solaris. I'm sending you a coppy of a GIF I made with GIMP which works with my Opera. See if it works with yours.

Also send me the GIF you made with your GIMP and I'll see if it works with my Opera.

If you are browsing locally (i.e. on your drive, not via the web), you have to take into account the file that UNIX is case sensitive. You have to check that the path and the name of the gif (and the ".gif" extension) are exactly written the same way as in the HTML code (and with slashes (/), not backslashes (\)).
If you are using the web, then the protocol is not case sensitive and will find the image even if there is such a mistake in the html code.

Olivier.

Domain name is not case sensitive, directories and files maybe depend in server and client; still trying to find explanation for accepting \ instead of /.

Just try http://www.gimp.org/win32/, http://WWW.GIMP.ORG/win32/ and http://www.gimp.org/WIN32/. In this case, WIN32 is not valid, Apache does not like it.

For more info I found RFC 2616, S3.2.3. Of course, it only says should, not must (check definitions of words in RFC 2119).
