I don't have a real solution for you, but it sounds like one or both
were linked incorrectly. You can try the PIL from my site, which is
probably better than the one on Jack's because it has libjpeg
statically included and includes better TIFF support.
I will be deprecating this database in favor of a Panther database in
the next few days.. Sorry guys, but I don't run Jaguar anymore. I will
leave all of the Jaguar packages and plists up, but I will no longer be
maintaining them. However, as a consolation, I'll add a wiki entry to
pythonmac.org about how to run your own Package Manager database and
make it easy/obvious to find the tools that I use to do so.
If you're on Panther, wait a few days.. I'll have a database up pretty
