Add Python Imaging Library (PIL) to repo
« on: January 16, 2017, 07:18:39 AM »
I'm trying to set up libmgr to integrate into pyTivo on my Pi.  When I try to start the service, libmgr is looking for a Python Imaging Library (PIL). I've found source code for it and have tried building it myself... But I'm having no luck (keep getting limits.h file not found as a python include).  Can someone help me out?  Either point me to what I'm doing wrong or include it in the repo?

Hi crakerjac
Did you install the tool chain for compiling? It will be either  compile-essentials.tcz  or  compiletc.tcz.

Thanks Rich!  That's exactly what I was missing.

One quick follow-up question.  After I install PIL, the installer throws some library files in /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/PIL... Does that path needed to be added to the persistent storage (.filetool.list), or, more specifically, how do I make sure I don't lose these changes after boot?

Hi crakerjac,
you could add any files to your backup, but more appropriately is to create an extension out of your build:

Download a copy and keep it handy: Core book ;)
