Installation of ImageMagick on Centos7


(Rogier Lommers) #1

I’m trying to instal ImageMagick on a Centos7 base image and I’m receiving errors related to depedencies. According to the ImageMagick website, the RPM is self-installing: ImageMagick RPM's are self-installing. Simply type the following command and you're ready to start using ImageMagick. Now I’m not sure if this is docker-related or not, but any help would be appreciated :).

FROM centos:7
ADD http://www.imagemagick.org/download/linux/CentOS/x86_64/ImageMagick-6.9.3-7.x86_64.rpm /tmp/ImageMagick-6.9.3-7.x86_64.rpm
RUN rpm -Uvh /tmp/ImageMagick-6.9.3-7.x86_64.rpm

Output of the build command is this:

So basically, what I want is:

  • the latest ImageMagick
  • in Centos7

Well, as the error messages says, there are dependencies that the rpm expects which are not present.

Is there a specific reason to use the latest RPM instead of just yum install -y imagemagick? That’d be by far the easiest solution. This gives ImageMagick 6.7.8-9 version for me on centos:latest.

If you absolutely must use the latest RPM, you probably need to yum update -y and yum install -y the listed libraries that the package assumes will be present but aren’t. I’m not 100% sure, but it’s possible the RPM expects some libraries to be around already which aren’t present in the centos image (Docker images are usually pretty barebones by default).

Thanks; however I need the latest version :(. Have managed this by creating a Dockerfile which builds latest Imagemagick from sources. Problem kind of solved, but I prefer using the official RPM though.
