image magick install help needed


I'm trying to find image magic for a CentOS box.
yum install imagemagic does not find anything.

Does anyone know the correct package name for image magic?

Any other suggestions as to what the problem might be?

it's called ImageMagick. You got it right in the title and then went astray!

It is ImageMagick (with two upper case characters). If you first try the list command of yum, it will list installed and available packages in a case insensitive way. And you can also use wildcards (the name of the package is actually a pattern). For example:
Code:
$ yum list image*
<omitted>
Installed Packages
ImageMagick.i386                         6.2.8.0-4.el5_1.1      installed       
ImageMagick-perl.i386                    6.2.8.0-4.el5_1.1      installed       
Available Packages
ImageMagick-c++.i386                     6.2.8.0-4.el5_1.1      base            
ImageMagick-c++-devel.i386               6.2.8.0-4.el5_1.1      base            
ImageMagick-devel.i386                   6.2.8.0-4.el5_1.1      base

the yum command there shows that it's not case sensitive though...

Interesting. i didn't think I had to have the k on the end. I thought it would be like:
yum install imagemagic*
but obviously it does not work that way.
Thanks for your help. I got it now.

ps. sorry for the long delay in replying. Fun got in the way of work.

It was installed by default on mine also. I was checking for it by typing:
rpm -qa | grep image and got nothing.
I had not used yum to check installed packages so I learned that from this thread also. Kewl.
