PIL and jpg -> png conversion, do I really need java for this???

Python Magic already has a python interface.
My suggestion was Python-wrapping CxImage. There is a learning curve for
boost.python (mostly installation/configuration) but once you get it writing
a great type-safe interface is a sinch.

Thanks for the advise. This seems a good solution but.. I just can't install
it on Linux (RH7.2) from the sources.

In a nutshell:

- I downloaded boost.python and PythonMagick.
- compiled bjam, copied this file into the same folder where the
PythonMagick/readme.txt file is at.
- changed the paths in buildLinux

tried to run buildLinux but it complains that it can not find

Now, I really tried to do my best to follow every readme file, but this time
it didn't help me.
What step did I miss here?

Hi Vincent,

after a lot of problems with our server, I just got the PythonMagick website
up and running again. If PNGs generated from ImageMagick work, it might be
of help to you. Just have a look: http://www.procoders.net/pythonmagick
