What other options for ImageMagick and RMagick would you suggest looking at?

I was also waiting for CentOS 5 since a few times. I hope the installation process is an easy and intuitive one. I would expect a first-run wizard to appear where I could set up the regular user account and localization details. I am glad to found this article here.

Just wanted to say thanks a lot, that worked perfectly :)

Phil

Good stuff. Thanks a lot for your write up.

Kirk

Thank you very much for this!

I followed your instructions, and they seemed to work fine. Until I ran into this while trying to migrate:

no such file to load -- rmagick

(There's require 'rmagick' in my rake file.)

The gem appears under gem list --locals, so I'm pretty helpless right now.

# yum install ImageMagick
(...)
Package ImageMagick-6.2.8.0-4.el5_1.1.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Package ImageMagick-6.2.8.0-4.el5_1.1.i386 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do

# yum install ImageMagick-devel
Package ImageMagick-devel-6.2.8.0-4.el5_1.1.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Package ImageMagick-devel-6.2.8.0-4.el5_1.1.i386 already installed and latest version

# gem install rmagick -v 1.15.17 --no-rdoc --no-ri -- --disable-htmldoc
Building native extensions. This could take a while...
Successfully installed rmagick-1.15.17
1 gem installed

# gem list --local
(...)
rmagick (1.15.17)

Any ideas?

Jan

require 'rubygems'
require 'RMagick'

Works fine. Don't know why the above works on my local Mac OS X, but not on the CentOS on my server. Anyway. Sorry for the false alarm. :-)

Still works in 2010. Thanks for the writeup, it was a serious time saver.

By the way, what are you using for your autogenerated avatars?
