Hi ,

  I have a FreeBSD6.0 server machine running zope2.9 and plone .

this m/c has    python-2.4.4  but no PIL module , I have to install it  to 
support the zope/plone application that I am running in this machine     But 
in /usr/ports there is no such port  for PIL OR I can't recoganize which 
port is it

I made  a serch     like this  /usr/ports]# make search name=py-pil    but 
it retuns null

So what steps I have to follow to install   PIL ( PythonImageLibrary) in 
this machine  ,

I tried pkg_add   -r  PIL   bu   Error message as  : FTP unable to get  PIL

so I used

  ftp -a ftp2.FreeBSD.org
ftp> get PIL 1.x.x

but error 550  PIL no such file or directory ,

please suggest  the proper  stpes to install  PIL in my BSD box ,

Thanks in advance
