Installing ImageMagick through WHM -> Software -> Install an RPM... two entries the same?

I just came across the need for ImageMagick on my server and went to install through WHM's Install an RPM. Going down the list I came across multiple entries for ImageMagick.

ImageMagick
ImageMagick
ImageMagick-c++
ImageMagick-c++
ImageMagick-c++-devel
ImageMagick-devel
ImageMagick-devel
ImageMagick-perl

I guess my question is... why the same entries are listed twice? All of them except perl show up twice in my options list to install. For fear that something could go wrong I want to hold off on installing before I find an answer to this as I have to assume there are differences just the same name showing. For my situation I only need ImageMagick for php so I assume 'ImageMagick' is what I need, but then there are two entries.

Any clarification?

Hello :)

You can run the /scripts/installimagemagick script as the root user via SSH to install ImageMagick.

Then, if you require PHP bindings with Apache, these bindings can be installed via the PECL utility:

Code:
/usr/local/bin/pecl install imagick
Thank you.

Just a quick note:

The ImageMagick binaries used to go into /usr/local/bin. Now, I see they are in /usr/bin

You can do a quick check to see which if either directory they are in:

/usr/bin/convert -version

/usr/local/bin/convert -version

There are 64 bit versions and 32 bit versions. (At least for ImageMagick it appears that the first one is 32bit and the second is 64.)
