Hi, I had to reinstall RMagick on my windows box. I am using cygwin and installed ImageMagick 6.2.6 from binary and then rmagick 1.10.1 from the gem install. Then I run irb > require 'RMagick' and boom no errors nothing on the cmd line just a big crash... Anyone seen this before ? Any help would be appreciated...

The rmagick gem is for Cygwin, the rmagick-win32 gem for native MS Windows. Can you use the ImageMagick commands like 'convert' and 'identify'? Try: identify myjpg.jpg convert myjpg.jpg mygif.gif Did the RMagick examples run correctly when you installed RMagick?

Hi Tim, Thanks for the reply. I ran a gem install rmagick from my cygwin prompt. All looked cool and it say rmagick was installed successfully. gem list shows it and RMagick.so is in the ruby i386 dir. From the same shell I can run display and ImageMagick comes up. Similarly identify xxx.gif works. Any other clues ? Does irb dumps it's crash logs somewhere ? Thanks you !!

Is it possible that you've got something in your .irbrc file that's conflicting with RMagick? P.S. I'm glad to hear that RMagick installs well on Cygwin. I don't have access to a box with Cygwin so I can't test it there.

Hi Tim, Sorry I've misread your initial response. I can not run the sample rmagick scripts such as identify.rb. The script returns right away with no errors. Just like irb. If I run > ruby -x identify.rb, I get the following message.. ruby: no Ruby script found in input (LoadError) I thought you meant if I could run ImageMagick's identify...

The "no Ruby script found in input" message isn't from RMagick or ImageMagick. I suppose it's a Ruby message but I'm not sure what it means. I'm still at a loss. The RMagick install process runs about 175 examples as part of building the documentation. If those examples all ran during the "gem install" then I can't think of any reason why you can't use RMagick now.

Hi Tim, Yes I am stuck.I have tried to reinstall either GraphicMagick or ImageMagick and still ending up with the same results. I have struggled with this before but somehow found the magic incantation. But now I can't see what I am missing The fact that ruby is crashing leads me to believe that a lib is either not there or is wrong for cygwin. The question then is which one ? I'll keep on grinding and hopefully will figure some solution. I'll sure would ate going back to my windows install...

Hi, > I ran a gem install rmagick from my cygwin prompt. Did it run all the example files in /doc/ex ? As Tim says, if it does that well, you are far along already. You might also try building a static version of RMagick.so once, just to see if you are in dll hell. best greetings, kaspar
