ImageMagick for PASE

This is an AIX compile of ImageMagick that works in the PASE environment under i5/OS. Please observe the following:


If you'd like to try running ImageMagick in PASE under OS/400, you can download the following. These are AIX compiles of ImageMagick as well as libpng and libxml2 (which ImageMagick requires.)

Install Instructions:

ImageMagick requires OS/400 V5R2 or later. (I think? Can anyone verify this? Does it work on V5R1? V5R2? V5R3?) You must have PASE installed.

  1. Download the preceding files to your IFS. (For the sake of example, I'm assuming you downloaded them to the /tmp directory.)

  2. Make sure the download was done in a binary-safe fashion (such as HTTP, FTP in binary mode, SCP, NFS, Windows Networking with Netserver translation off, etc.)

  3. Log on to your i with an account with high authority. (Is *ALLOBJ required? Does anyone know?)

  4. type the following:

    • cd /
    • uncompress -c /tmp/libxml2.2.6.26.tar.Z | tar xvf -
    • uncompress -c /tmp/libpng.1.2.8.tar.Z | tar xvf -
    • uncompress -c /tmp/ImageMagick.6.2.3.tar.Z | tar xvf -
  5. Make sure your /qopensys/usr/local is symlinked to /usr/local

At this point, ImageMagick should be installed. The libraries are in /usr/local/lib, the programs are in /usr/local/bin. Try it out!
