Hi all,

We are trying to install imagemagick on unix AIX 6.

We have installed all dependencies as noted in this discussion.
http://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?

Hi,

this is an original AIX fileset, not an RPM package.
I don't know why it's not mentioned in the dependencies list.

Anyway, as I already wrote in the original Q, install the fileset

xlsmp.aix53.rte

from your installation  medium using "installp" or "smitty install", then issue

/usr/sbin/updtvpkg

to  update the rpm database with the information that libxlsmp.a is now  installed.
(This is always needed after installing stuff via installp  which is also needed by rpm packages).

Now retry!
