    Arrow image magick & RAQ 4??


    I need to install image magick on my RAQ 4 as a script requires it!

    Are there any install instructions available for the latest version of image magick on a RAQ 4? Anyone done this before? I don't want to crash my pizza box!!!!

    Original thread:

    I'll link this in the duplicate post you put in the rackshack forums as well....

    ImageMagick for Cobalt RAQ3/4

    These instructions will provide support for JPEG, GIF, TIFF & PNG file support for ImageMagick.

    All the unix commands where execute as the "root" user, using an ssh connection.

    1. Download ImageMagic-5.3.7.tar.gz


    You will also need to download the following supports files if not already installed. You can check for the header files in /usr/include to see if installed.


    Also check in /usr/local/include as rpm packages might install the header files in this directory.

    You can all use the rpm application to see if any of these applications are already installed.

    I used..

    # rpm -q -a | grep png
    # rpm -q -a | grep tiff

    If you do not get any result on the tiff rpm command don't worry - check /usr/local/include and /usr/include - if the tiff file is there it will work

    But bear in mind you still might not have the header files that will be require for compiling latter, so still check for the .h files

    2. Download jpegsrc.v6b.tar.gz


    3. Download tiff-v3.5.5.tar.gz


    4. Download libtiff-lzw-compression-kit.1.1.tar.gz


    5. Download libpng-1.0.6.tar.gz


    For the purpose of this example, I loaded all my files into /home/sites/home/installed/imagemagick

    Make sure that all these files are transfer as Binary.

    Once uploaded, you will need to do the following for each file uploaded.

    this unpacks everything:
    #tar -zxvf ImageMagick-5.3.7.tar
    #tar -zxvf libpng-1.0.6.tar
    #tar -zxvf libtiff-lzw-compression-kit-1.1.tar
    #tar -zxvf jpegsrc.v6b.tar
    #tar z-xvf tiff-v3.5.5.tar


    #cd libpng-1.0.6
    #cd scripts
    #cp makefile.linux ../makefile
    #cd ..
    #make install
    #cd ..

    #cd jpeg-6b
    #./configure --enable-shared
    #make install

    #cd libtiff-lzw-compression-kit
    #vi Makefile

    TIFF_SRC_DIR = /tmp/libtiff
    TIFF_SRC_DIR = ../tiff-v3.5.5

    Then Save end Exit the Editor

    #make install
    #cd ..
    #cd tiff-v3.5.5

    Answer yes to TIFF Configuration Parameters

    #make install

    #cd ImageMagick-5.3.7
    #./configure --enable-lzw=yes --enable-shared=yes --disable-static --with-perl=/usr/bin/perl
    #make install
    #make check (this will just run through a view convserion checks..

    now... it should work
    Happy Imaging.



    use Image::Magick;

    $image = new Image::Magick;

    $image->Border(geometry=>'1x1', fill=>cornflowerblue);
    print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
    print "<html><body>should work...</body></html>";

    you must CHMOD the output dir with 0777....

    that's it!
