Failed to emerge media-gfx/imagemagick-

By , last updated September 10, 2019

If you’ve upgraded Perl on your Gentoo box to 5.12, and tries to reemerge ImageMagick, you might get this error:

Reemerge with:

 # USE="-perl" emerge -av imagemagick

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

You might also want to update /etc/portage/package.use with “media-gfx/imagemagick -perl” if you don’t need Perl with ImageMagick.
