According to this thread, it is because PIL (Python Imaging Library) cannot find the system libraries needed. The thread mentions two ways to fix this. The first way involves editing setup.py for PIL and I couldn't get it to work. The other way involves creating symboling links to the libraries so the installer finds them. This I cannot do because I don't have sudo rights. I found the libraries on Webfaction's server and the commands would be:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libfreetype.so /usr/lib/
Does anyone know of a third solution, or do I need to open a ticket?
Thanks in advance!
