not sure where to go from here, pretty green at this stuff so any help would be very apprieciated!!
I think it wants the ‘pillow’ package installed. @Blsteinhauer88 went through this recently, here. Not sure what he found, it might have been something like:
python -m pip install pillow
I also put this in the requirements.txt file recently so you can always do
pip install -r requirements_linux.txt to pick up any new dependencies
installed pillow package and it looks like GC is up and running. fingers crossed it will all go well when i hook it up to maslow…tomorrows job. thanks so much for the replies, you guys rock!
oh, should i also do pip install -r requirements_linux.txt ?
or if its not broke dont fix it?!?
About half the time I ignore the “if it’s not broke” I regret it. YMMV
