    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

    root@user [/tmp/install]# rpm -ivh bzip2-1.0.0-1.i386.rpm

    i had installed ImageMagick-4.2.9-3.i386.rpm via whm but when i try rpm -e ImageMagick-4.2.9-3.i386.rpm it says that it has not been installed.

    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.
