Well, display(1) is indeed one of the ImageMagick utilities. You can find
the list in the ImageMagick man page.

Looks OK to me

This says just what I did: no such thing as ImageMagick
executable... It seems to me that you expect there to be one. There
isn't, AFAIK. There are various utilities (listed in the man page)
that together comprise the ImageMagick package.

This gives you all the files with ImageMagick in the full path...

And this gives you rpms with ImageMagick in the name...

What did you expect to see?
