#40 Animal looks for ImageMagick 5.4.2


Hello there,

I'm very interested in using SIP, but I'm having problems with the installation.

While compiling animal I got an error with ./configure, I got the following error:

checking for ImageMagick - version >= 5.4.2... no
*** The $ac_path_lib_imagemagick_config script installed by ImageMagick could not be found.
*** If ImageMagick was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the IMAGEMAGICK_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to $ac_path_lib_imagemagick_config.
configure: error: ImageMagick version >= 5.4.2 was not found.

Image Magick is certainly installed and the the shell is responsive to commands like "convert"

I'm working in Fedora 9. 32 bit machine

Thanks in advance

    if convert works, then tell me the version:

    $ convert --version

    Also, what version of animal are you using?

    Please send us the config.log file from inside animal and we will solve this pbm asap. It should be simple.
