Subject: Failed to install PerlMagic 6.87 under Strawberry perl v5.18.1
Date: Thu, 2 Jan 2014 02:29:58 +0400
To: bug-PerlMagick@rt.cpan.org
From: Sly G <slyg@liza2005.ru>
Hello. Failed to install PerlMagic 6.87 under Strawberry perl v5.18.1 After "cpan -i Image::Magick" I'm getting an error: Warning (mostly harmless): No library found for -lMagickCore-6.Q16 I've read readme.txt section about Strawberry and have met all prerequisites 1)...5), but still I cannot install it. Tried with ImageMagick 6.88 installed from binaries with dynamic dlls. -- Sly mailto:slyg@liza2005.ru
