|D) Creating a Python Virtual Environment
|If you are running other applications and web sites on your server, it may be worth while creating a python virtual environment for developing in - this can avoid problems between python packages installed by your operating system and those installed by easy_install. You will need to have the virtualenv package installed first - in Debian and Ubuntu systems you can apt-get install python-virtualenv, then:
|$ virtualenv -p /usr/bin/python2.4 --no-site-packages src/pyvirt
|$ easy_install http://dist.repoze.org/PIL-1.1.6.tar.gz
|This will install the virtual env into src/pyvirt, activate it and then install the (required) Python Imaging Library into the virtual env.
