The wish is to manipulate images from the command line using the ImageMagick tools.
No package manager because:
- The MacPorts
brewpackage managers have Xcode dependencies.
- Xcode is a 4.1GB download for version 3.2.6 and I am not willing to wait for that.
- Loads of dependencies exists in the packages themselves.
- For example ImageMagick using homebrew depends on
pkg-config, which fails to download:
curl: (7) couldn't connect to host.
The ImageMagick.org supplied precompiled binary release is also no option as that ImageMagick-x86_64-apple-darwin12.0.0.tar.gz binary is compiled for Darwin version 12 (Mountain Lion) which results in "segmentation faults" when being run on Snow Leopard (10.6.8).
How to install ImageMagick on 10.6 (Snow Leopard) using a precompiled binary (without a package manager)?
