Hi all,

We are trying to install imagemagick on unix AIX 6.

We have installed all dependencies as noted in this discussion.
https://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/System/Unix_-_Posix/Q_26293682.html

But upon the install of Imagemagick we still get the following error

root@eva:/usr/inst/ImageMagick 4361> rpm -i ImageMagick-Q16-6.5.4.2-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
        libxlsmp.a(smprt.o) is needed by ImageMagick-Q16-6.5.4.2-1
root@eva:/usr/inst/ImageMagick 4362>

what is using libxlsmp.a? Am I missing a dependency?
