However it is usally a version that is quite old in terms of updates and developments.
Instead try to download the fedora RPM's, or compile it using the provided SRPM's from the IM web site. This is what I do!
NOTE: often has dependancies that are not always needed. As such when I install it I
do so forcefully...
rpm -Uhv --force --nodeps ImageMagick-*.i386.rpm
and to remove (for replacement, without removing things depending on it)
rpm -e --nodeps ImageMagick ImageMagick-perl
Also the perl version sometimes requires a slight 'fix' for different versions of perl than what it was built with... I do something like following to do this on FC5, to move the modules to the right perl version, and leave a symbloic link for future installs.
But don't do it blindly...
Code: Select all
cp -rp /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.7/ /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.6/ rm -r /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.7 ln -s 5.8.6 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.7
