Sorry guys, I am a bit of a noob when it comes to python. I've downloaded PythonMagick-0.9.8. Unzipped it and ran ./configure Then I ran 'make' and I get a bunch of errors mainly to do with boost. Can anyone point me in the right direction to get this installed please?

Thanks

Boost is a C++ library and PythonMagick is dependent on it. I think you would need to follow this guide to get Boost installed. Getting Started with Boost

With Boost installed try PythonMagick again.

When you build software from source on our platform you must build the dependencies and the software within your home directory, which requires at the very least the '--prefix=$HOME' flag on the './configure' command. More details are outlined in our documentation. We are also happy to take a look if you submit a support ticket and have any questions.

Thanks very much for the advice but I have spent half the day trying to get this to work with no luck so I will "put it in the too hard basket" for a day or so.
