I don't think it is relevant to your problem, but if you do want  
tkinter support, install the tk-devel RPM.

It looks like it is the decoder that is not found.  I just tried the  
'build' and 'selftest.py' steps on an FC5 machine and all the tests  
passed.  My only guess is that you have a _imag*.so  around from an  
earlier attempt when you didn't have the JPEG encoder.


P.S.  Fedora Core 5 even packages PIL as python-imaging.  I don't  
suppose your distribution does as well?
