Yep, another animated avatar thread

#1
Hi all,

in our ubuntu vps (XenForo 1.1.3) i've installed imagick (apt-get install php5-imagick) and imagemagick (apt-get install imagemagick), restarted apache2 (and also the vps), and selected imagick in the acp, but can't still see the animated avatar on the threads list or in posts.
In phpinfo imagick is enabled.

Also in the data/avatars, the gif are converted in jpg.

What i should do or check now?

Hum, for testing purpose i'm using this:
http://rumorsontheinternets.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/indianajonesgif.gif (ftw indie!)

I have installed the latest version and now work like a charm (i can't understand why in the ftp the avatar is still in jpg o_O), btw here it is what i've done in ubuntu (i think it will do the trick in any other debian based)

Code:
sudo apt-get install make
sudo apt-get install php5-pear
sudo apt-get install php5-dev (i'm not quite sure it's needed)
sudo apt-get install libmagickwand-dev libmagickcore-dev (or the pecl will stuck during the make)
sudo pecl install imagick-3.1.0RC2 (only imagick won't work, and that it's the actual latest version)
sudo nano /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini (or gedit or whatever you use)
[INDENT=1]add the "extension=imagick.so" in the [extension] section[/INDENT]
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart (or nginx or you prefered webserver)
now reupload the avatar.


Hope this will help someone, and thank a lot Jake for pointing me out the latest pecl version!
