Installing RMagick with Gmagick on xp64!

With Ruby -186-26

I installed GMagic first. v 1.1.11 q16
as I wanted some simple graphics. lines etc.
Then I installed RMagic 2.3.0

Now, it’s in the gem list:
*** LOCAL GEMS ***

fxri (0.3.6)
fxruby (1.6.12)
hpricot (0.6)
log4r (1.0.5)
rake (0.7.3)
rmagick (2.3.0) <<=== see? it’s here!
rubygems-update (1.1.1)
sources (0.0.1)
win32-api (1.0.4)
win32-clipboard (0.4.3)
win32-dir (0.3.2)
win32-eventlog (0.4.6)
win32-file (0.5.4)
win32-file-stat (1.2.7)
win32-process (0.5.3)
win32-sapi (0.1.4)
win32-sound (0.4.1)
windows-api (0.2.0)
windows-pr (0.7.2)

However the following code:

require ‘rubygems’
require ‘RMagick’

when executed results in a window saying:
The procedure entry point EncipherImage could not be located in the
dynamic link library CORE_RL_magic_.dll

Then txt to the console says:

c:/Program Files
(x86)/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rmagick-2.3.0-x86-mswin32/ext/RMagick2.so:
127: The specified procedure could not be found.
… etc

So, where am I going wrong?

desparate

TIA!

Probably by installing an ImageMagick fork. From a superficial
eyeballing of GraphicsMagick (which tells me it was forked off of
ImageMagick 5.5.2), you get the issue that RMagick cannot use the DLL
provided by your installation of GMagick. (Oh the joyful world of
forks…)

Anyway, to solve your question / issue:

The RMagick FAQ says to use the mswin32 gem (which, at least the last
time I had it installed, sort-of breaks RubyGems, but I’m too lazy to
file a bug, let alone find out if it is one), which comes with a bundled
ImageMagick that you have to use.

The FAQ:
http://rmagick.rubyforge.org/install-faq.html#win

You can grab the Gem / ImageMagick version from

http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=12

I largely followed this, except I went the Gmagick way.

You can grab the Gem / ImageMagick version from

http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=12

So what you are saying is I should go the Imagick way.

Should I uninstall Gmagick first?

I didn’t unintall Gmagic, installed Imagic, and it’s much happier!

Thanks!
