how to install libMagick.so.5?


I'm trying to install transcode and it needs libMagick.so.5. I've checked on Google, but everwhere points me to the standard ImageMagick rpm. I have the ImageMagick-5.5.6-5 rpm installed on my machine, but I don't know exactly where libMagick.so.5 comes from.

Thanks for your help.

You might look at rpmfind.net when searching for RPM's Here's my search:
http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/se...y=libMagick.so

Basically, it looks like you should look for a lib file, and/or a -devel version of that file. Usually that's the problem when you don't meet lib requirements for files that you know are indeed installed.

Cool

Here's a suggestion that may work if you've still got weirdness. Do a locate for libMagick.so and see if you get any results, ie.

locate -i libMagick.so

The -i is to ignore case. Now assuming ImageMagick is installed you should get the paths to files that contain the phrase you searched for in them. If you find you only have a file like libMagick.so.5.5.6 (for example, it's probably different), you can try and get your program to work by sym-linking the library you have to the name of the one that's needed.

So the result of the locate might look like:

/usr/lib/libMagick.so.5.5.6
/usr/lib/libMagick.so.5

So as root you could go:

cd /usr/lib
ln -s libMagick.so.5.5.6 libMagick.so

And you might have some luck. But if you can, try MasterC's advice first.

Thanks for your suggestions. I'm posting a followup for whomever this may help in the future. As it turns out, I did have libMagick-devel installed already and no amount of removing it and re-installing could make libMagick.so.5 visible to transcode.

In trying to address this and other issues, something that I rpm'd caused a segmentation fault that brought Fedora Core 1 to its knees. My desktop froze and the system would not even boot.

Bottom line is, after reinstalling, I was able to install transcode via yum, letting it sort out all the dependencies.
