Hello, i have just installed ImageMagick via whm and all seemed to go ok, will test later.

The version installed was 4.2.9-3.i386.rpm, however from the main ImageMagick ftp mirror it reports the latest version as ImageMagick-5.4.5-1.i386.rpm for redhat 6.2.

Is it advisable to to upgrade to this later version?

Hello, ok i found out i need to install ver 5.** of ImageMagick to get a script to work.

I Dl latest version 5.** for RH 6.2 and did rpm ugrade, needed to to install freetype 2.** rpm, and bzip22-1.0.0-1.i386.rpm.

freetype went ok but bzip failed with errors

[email protected] [/tmp/install]# rpm -ivh bzip2-1.0.0-1.i386.rpm

Well, you can try the death-defying

rpm -Uvh RPM_NAME_HERE.rpm --nodeps --force

Which will force the installation or upgrade regardless of dependencies. On a RH 6.2 box this is sometimes one of the only possibly routes for getting things updates like you require.

But it can cause more harm than good, just be careful.

:( last resort.

Have found some stuf about perlmagick needing to be installed, not using it with perl script but might help.
