here's the convert --version
Version: ImageMagick 6.2.8 03/31/08
This is running on RHEL 5.4. Unfortunately on this server yum no longer pulls updates so it's kinda stuck in time in that regard.
The command I'm using is /usr/bin/convert -scale 145 -depth 8 then the two file names, which works 95% of the time, but every once in a while we get segmentation errors, so wondering if there's a way to have convert tell me what it's failing on, or some trick to get it to still convert.
Does ghostscript even have a command named "convert"?
Sorry for not including more info on the how can I get more details out of convert question, thought it was a general enough output question that more details would be just fluff and get in the way.
It is very old. It was 7 years ago and many bug fixes has been done since then. I am afraid that without updating you will not force this tool to work better. For converting PDF to image format you can also use "pdftocairo" from Poppler tools, also Gimp can do that.
