I have a django site with the PIL package installed and I am getting an error: decoder jpeg not available

I found the answer, which is to do: yum install -y libjpeg-devel and then install pil again. But when I try to install the libjpeg it says: You need to be root to perform this command.

Is there a way to do this? Thanks.

You can't use yum on a server as that would make system-wide changes. Please take a look at this question for a PIL install guide. Hope that helps!

Thank you for that link, somehow I missed it. It worked, and that is extremely awesome.
