It seems you have not installed development packages while doing installation.
However in case your system is connected to the internet then run following command

yum install gcc*

After that then try to complie your program...

Hopefully your issue shall get resolved else let me know...


All the best...

Thanks for the reply gaurav6628. Here is the message encountered per your suggestion. Please advise if running is correct.
Also, I am currently connected to the internet.

[root@ACSS-SDDBEASRV02 ImageMagick-6.6.9-9]# yum install gcc*
Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
This system is not registered with RHN.
RHN support will be disabled.
Setting up Install Process
No package gcc* available.
Nothing to do

It seems you have installed a red hat enterprise and you do not have the licences hence giving same error.

Create a yum repository and then try running the following command.

What distro are you running?

The command given by gaurav will only run on a select few Linux distributions - namely RHEL, CentOS, ScientificLinux, and few others.

Judging by the output of the command, it appears that you might be running an RHEL installation without the necessary support contract, in which case you cannot update or install anything. This is why RHEL should never be installed without the accompanying support contract, it is not a "free" Linux distribution.

If all of the above is true, then your only option is to either re-install a truly free distribution or convert your RHEL installation to a free version. RHEL is compatible with CentOS and ScientificLinux, therefore the easiest solution would be to convert to one of their repositories:
http://www.unixmen.com/201201-how-to...to-centos-6-x/

If you want to install a different distribution, then the options are endless. And in the future, it would help if you provided the necessary information for us to answer the question - namely what distribution and version you're running.




And ignoring ALL of that, it is RARELY necessary to compile your own version of ImageMagick on any Linux distro. The vast majority of distros include ImageMagick in the standard repositories, which makes installation trivially easy (unless you're running an unlicensed version of RHEL, in which case see above).

suicidaleggroll, please assist. How will I know the distro?

Please assist as this is the scenario happening.

There is currently an installed Linux Server here. I am only trying to access the server through my PC using a root account. FYI, I am not the one who installed the Linux server. As per the problem, I was only asked by my Supervisor to install the ImageMagick and an instruction guide was given but it seams some errors occured while compiling and extracting the ImageMagick tar file.

Please advise. Thanks.

Post the output of:
Code:
cat /etc/*release*
and
Code:
uname -a
That should tell us what disto you're running and how to move forward.

Looks like you're running an old RHEL 5 release without a valid license. In which case, follow these instructions to convert to the CentOS repositories:

suicidaleggroll, please assist.

Upon investigation of the Linux server, there are actually 2 connected IP Addresses in the server.
Please advise, if I execute the Conversion of RHEL 5 to CentOS 5, will the other one be affected?

Thanks

All the conversion does is change the yum repositories, it shouldn't have any effect on the other settings in the system.

I would also point out to your Supervisor what you are doing. Its possible they do want RH support and have paid for it but not registered that box or are willing to pay to get the RH support.
Do this BEFORE you change repos.
Centos is the same as RHEL, but is free, thus does not have support.
