Can’t install RMagick 2.13.2. Can’t find MagickWand.h.

Searched for file MagickWand.h


[root@lin redmine]# find /usr -name MagickWand.h
/usr/local/src/ImageMagick-6.8.8-7/wand/MagickWand.h
/usr/local/include/ImageMagick-6/wand/MagickWand.h

Problem is fixed by running

C_INCLUDE_PATH=/usr/local/include/ImageMagick-6 PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/ gem install rmagick -v '2.13.2'


[root@lin pkgconfig]# C_INCLUDE_PATH=/usr/local/include/ImageMagick-6 PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/ gem install rmagick -v '2.13.2'
