I'm sorry. "OP" is list/net-speak for "Original Poster". Who is you, Albert.

If you going to use rpm for your updates you need to get a list of
ImageMagick packages that are already installed on your system, e.g.
"rpm -qa | grep Imagemagick". Then go to the FC update site and
download the latest versions of the installed packages to the same
directory. After downloading cd to your download directory and do
"sudo rpm -Uvh ImageMagick*.rpm".

You can save yourself a lot of this bother if you use YUM to perform
your updates.
