I think I accidently did install 2 ImageMagicks to my CentOS 5.8 before.

Version 6.2.8 was removed by

yum erase ImageMagick

However, it still shows this when I typed $convert -version

Version: ImageMagick 6.8.2-9 2013-02-11 Q16
Copyright: Copyright (C) 1999-2013 ImageMagick Studio LLC
Features: DPC OpenMP
Delegates: jng jpeg png ps xml zlib

which convert shows this


This one. I probably installed from the source.
How can I remove this?

What does 'rpm -qf /usr/local/bin/convert' show? – Justin Feb 12 '13 at 3:33
@Justin Thanks it showed file /usr/local/bin/convert is not owned by any package – HUSTEN Feb 12 '13 at 3:35
I might have installed it by wget and make => make install – HUSTEN Feb 12 '13 at 3:35
Just downloaded the ImageMagick source, and you're lucky! it comes with an uninstall target. just run 'make uninstall' from your build folder and it will remove it. This is not common and is the reason to prefer building/using packages over building from source; . – Justin Feb 12 '13 at 3:40
@Justin Thanks for reply. what folder shoud I go? cd /usr/local/bin/convert and execute make uninstall? – HUSTEN Feb 12 '13 at 3:41

Run 'make uninstall' from the ImageMagick source folder, it includes an uninstall target.

tar zxvf ImageMagick.tar.gz
cd ImageMagick-6.8.2-10
make uninstall
