Linux Commands to Install ImageMagick and RMagick

This is what I had to do to get it to work on CentOS 5. For some reason, FreeType would not work with yum so I built it from scratch. I’m not sure if the all the “yum install”s were needed, but I did it anyway.

#yum install freetype — did not work

cd /usr/local/src

wget http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/freetype/freetype-2.3.5.tar.gz

tar xvzf freetype-2.3.5.tar.gz

./configure

make

make install
