 ImageMagick Installation
Author: Aaron 
Date:   04-04-05 14:56


I'm new to FreeBSD. Infact, ImageMagick was the first package that I have installed.

I installed it last night, into the /usr/ports/graphics/ directory. All good.

Today I installed a php script called Gallery on the server in question, and started to have issues with uploading images. I checked the FAQ and this was a documented FreeBSD specific problem.

Anyway, It gave directions on how to start from scratch and install Image Properly using the correct commands:

make -DWITH_JPEG -DWITH_TIFF -DWITH_PNG install clean

However this is where I hit a wall and ended up just deinstalling the package and removing the ImageMagick directory from /usr/ports/graphics so I could start over.

I went to pkg_add ImageMagick, but forgot to do this from the correct directory.

Everything works OK. The Gallery has found it and uploads are sweet. My only concern is WHERE ImageMagick is installed now. It's not in /usr/ports/graphics.

Here's what I get when I do a find for ImageMagick:

Anyone know where exactly it is installed? And should I be worried that it isn't installed in the ports directory?
