Today i was trying out plone. With the unified installer

it aint a big thing to install plone, but when it comes to

make a new buildout you can get in a slight hassle.

At least i did. In the buildout routine you come to a point

where you do:

python bootstrap.py

I used the python that is installed with arch. But then you get

a lot of errors complaining about missing PIL:

2009-02-20 16:28:57 ERROR PortalTransforms Problem importing module image_to_png : No module named PIL.Image

2009-02-20 16:28:58 INFO Archetypes /home/sveri/Plone/zinstance/bin/youriq/parts/plone/Archetypes/Field.py[102]:?

Warning: no Python Imaging Libraries (PIL) found.Archetypes based ImageField’s don’t scale if neccessary.

So, to get around that you have to use the python

that came with the unifiebind installer like:

/path/to/plone/Python-2.4/bin/python bootstrap.py

and everything will be good :-)
