Commandline only build

I'm thinking about running calibre on my little server (a DNS-323 which runs linux). I've other python programs running okay.

I don't need the GUI, of course, just the server part running so that feeds are downloaded overnight and emailed to my kindle.

Is this possible ?

I tried building calibre on the DNS-323 but I see :-

$ python
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 13, in <module>
import setup.commands as commands
File "/mnt/HD_a2/home/plord/src/calibre/calibre/setup/", line 28, in <module>
from setup.translations import POT, GetTranslations, Translations, ISO639
File "/mnt/HD_a2/home/plord/src/calibre/calibre/setup/", line 14, in <module>
from setup.build_environment import pyqt
File "/mnt/HD_a2/home/plord/src/calibre/calibre/setup/", line 12, in <module>
from PyQt4 import pyqtconfig
ImportError: No module named PyQt4

which is true ... there isn't any QT installed.

Is it possible to have a server-only version of calibre ?

Many thanks,
