Can't install rpm on RedHat

Post by aporthog » 2014-10-20T15:21:46-07:00

I've seen a few postings on this topic but so far haven't seen any answers. My systems is Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.5 (Santiago)

I've followed the instructions here:

yum install ImageMagick-devel works but gives me Version: ImageMagick 6.5.4-7 2014-01-30 Q16 OpenMP Ancient. Although the date listed is 2014-01-30. Confusing.

Anyway, all of the steps finished successfully but when I get to "nice rpmbuild --nodeps --rebuild ImageMagick*.src.rpm" it runs for a while and everything looks good but at the end I get

libtool: install: warning: remember to run `libtool --finish /usr/lib64/ImageMagick-6.8.9/modules-Q16/coders'
make[2]: Leaving directory `/root/rpmbuild/BUILD/ImageMagick-6.8.9-8'
make[1]: *** [install-am] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/rpmbuild/BUILD/ImageMagick-6.8.9-8'
make: *** [install] Error 2
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.V0j3VG (%install)

RPM build errors:
user cristy does not exist - using root
group cristy does not exist - using root
user cristy does not exist - using root
group cristy does not exist - using root
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.V0j3VG (%install)

And my rpmbuild/RPMS directory is empty.

(I'm running all of this under sudo -i)

I'd prefer using yum but I suppose I could try and build from source. Problem is, last time I tried that it was pretty much hell getting all the delegates to work. With the 6.5.4-7 version at least I can see I have all the delegates I need.
