My application needs to call 'convert' - http://linux.about.com/od/commands/l/blcmdl1_convert.htm

But its not present on my redhat system. How / what do I install?

convert is part of the package ImageMagick; try sudo yum install ImageMagick (or other privilege escalation method as appropriate to your system).

Next time you need a command like this you can figure out what package to install by running something like yum whatprovides '*/convert'.

You'll want to format that a bit differently. yum whatprovides '*/convert' –  Aaron Copley Nov 2 '10 at 20:54
