RMagick vs. the Rest of the World

July 24, 2007 by Michael

Installing RMagick seems to be a major pain in the ass… On all systems i got my hands on.

On a fresh Ubuntu Feisty Fawn gems presented me this:

configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables

Hrmpf, ImageMagick was installed, gcc for sure… What did i miss?

   1. sudo apt-get install imagemagick  
   2. sudo apt-get install libmagick9-dev  
   3. sudo gem install rmagick  

Well, the 2nd one…. Found here.
