[RndTbl] recommendations for good linux web server based photo gallery software?

I've used Gallery 3, and setup is quite simple, though it does require a
sql server.
Once you extract the tar ball with all the php files I think it's as simple
as running the setup.php file from your browser and plugging in your sql
server details and the automated script does the rest.
