Topic: RMagick on Dreamhost

Has anyone had any luck running RMagick on Dreamhost? I tried downloading and compiling imagemagick and got in a bit of a mess and I'm a bit scared to try again.

Ok, so after about four days of looking I found something which works. This script worked for me.

I'm still getting an error "can't convert Magick::GravityType into Integer" when creating square thumbs, but the main image is resizing ok. Phew!

Re: RMagick on Dreamhost

It seems Dreamhost is running RMagick 1.14.1 and ImageMagick 6.2.4

Can anyone give me clear instructions how I can upgrade RMagick?

I've downloaded RMagick 1.9.3 and unpacked it, but when I run configure I get this error

configure: error: Can't install RMagick. Can't find Magick-config or GraphicsMagick-config program.

thanks
