This site is currently on Middleman, and the
middleman-favicon-maker gem that I use to generate all the various favicon files relies on ImageMagick. My local development environment is CentOS 6.6 which, sadly, has a very outdated version of ImageMagick in yum. Thankfully, the REMI repository has an updated version, so we can get that installed very quickly.
Install REMI repository
For CentOS 6.x
1 2 wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-6.rpm rpm -Uvh remi-release-6.rpm
For CentOS 7.x
1 2 wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-7.rpm rpm -Uvh remi-release-7.rpm
Visit this resource for installing REMI on additional distros.
Enable REMI repository
remi.repo (might need sudo)
1 vim /etc/yum.repos.d/remi.repo
In the section titled
[remi] (probably the first one), change enabled=0 to enabled=1, then save and close this file.
Install latest ImageMagick
Install ImageMagick from the REMI repository (might need sudo)
1 yum --enablerepo=remi install ImageMagick-last
