Slicehost CentOS RMagick Install

by Jason on February 20, 2009

I feel your pain.

The problem is that if you install ImageMagick and ImageMagick-devel from yum you end up with version 6.2.x instead of the required 6.3.x or higher that RMagick requires.

Just install from source.  Follow these steps.

wget ftp://ftp.imagemagick.org/pub/ImageMagick/ImageMagick.tar.gz

cd ImageMagick-6-??

./configure

make

make install

gem install rmagick

Relax with a beer.
