macOS, PNG conversion gives "Abort trap: 6"

Post by im1127 » 2017-05-24T02:57:59-07:00

I just installed ImageMagick on my MacBook pro (Sierra), version 7.0.5, in order to use with LaTeX (converting PDF output to PNG). This command line crashes with "Abort trap: 6"

Code: Select all

Are you sure you are running ImageMagick's "convert"? With version 7.0.5 it's "magick" or "magick convert" instead.

How did you install -- from IM binary, from IM source, from MacPorts or Homebrew? If you installed from IM binary, then that binary is only for El Capitan and not Sierra.

At ... php#macosx, it says:

"ImageMagick-x86_64-apple-darwin15.6.0.tar.gz download download Mac OS X El Capitan"

If you want IM 7, then you can get it from Homebrew. If you want IM 6, you can get it from MacPorts.

I typically install all my delegates from MacPorts and install IM from source. See viewtopic.php?f=1&t=21502&p=88202&hilit ... rts#p88202
