Install a downloaded rpm with newer version than the one yum finds

i'm running RHEL5.

if yum finds no updates to a certain package (namely ImageMagick), but a newer rpm is available directly from the ImageMagick site, is it safe to install the rpm?

if yes, how do i do that?

if you download the stable verstion, its should be safe

redhat people might to update their yum site to get new update for that software .

download the rpm from that site
suuport its magic.rpm

you need to install like this

rpm- ivh rpmfilename

or you can upgrade from old to new

rpm - uvh rpmname

hmm i tried installing from source.

after ./configure, i saw that most options with default set to "yes" were set to "false", especially PNG (which we need).

any ideas?
