Installing pngcrush on RHEL 5

Installing pngcrush on RHEL 5

There are two basic ways to install pngcrush on RHEL 5.  From RPM or from source.  If  you are able to use non Red Hat repositories I would recommend using DAG. However if your system policy to only allow Red Hat repositories pngcrush you need to install from source.  It is very easy and painless.

sudo su -
cd /usr/src
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/pmt/pngcrush/00-1.7.12/pngcrush-1.7.12.tar.bz2?r=http%3A%2F%2Fsourceforge.net%2Fprojects%2Fpmt%2Ffiles%2F&ts=1285706068&use_mirror=voxel
tar -xjf pngcrush-1.7.12.tar.bz2
cd pngcrush-1.7.12
make
cp pngcrush /usr/bin
