Hi,

I'm currently learning Elixir, and one of the things I'm touching on is creating images
but I'm running into a quite major speedbump, egd is unavailable in both Elixir and 
Eshell.

As a quick test I found the following[1] erlang program that use egd and compiled that 
via Eshell[2], where you can see egd:create/2 is unavailable.

I've installed the erlang-percept package from the erlang-solutions repository[3], so
as far as I understand it should be available. am I missing something?

As for why OTP 20? That's what I get from the repo by default.
