Which version of CentOS, please? Also, you can often reuse old rpm packaging. You'll need a source rpm, and then you can use the old spec file with minor modifications with the new sources. –  Faheem Mitha May 27 '11 at 12:12

If you don't want to download the source and compile it yourself, you should try to locate a RPM for your platform (e.g. from, and install it using

I have no idea how to compile. It looks like those rpm's are old versions. The latest version is 1.61 I believe. Are their any alternatives for gif resizing? Imagemagick is slow and does not handle animations well –  Anonymous May 26 '11 at 19:43
Compiling should be pretty straightforward - download the source, extract it, change to the directory and run ./configure && make && sudo make install –  Anonymous May 26 '11 at 19:48
Thanks I'll try that –  Anonymous May 26 '11 at 19:52
