Anyone running calibre on Centos 5.3?

I'm having problems installing using both methods referenced in the Linux page, but before I enter bugs or ask for help here, I was wondering if anyone had gotten a working setup on CentOS?

I can now report that the answer to that question is "yes!". It took a lot of hacking and slashing through dependency hell, but I managed to get calibre up and running on CentOS 5.3. I'm happy to help anyone else who wants to do the same.

Did you get the binary or the sourceinstall working?

I managed to get the sourceinstall working. The major problems revolved around getting a python 26 with all the required modules in place. Not a horrible task, but I kept running into things like the fact that the easy-to-find qt rpms didn't have webkit included, which wasn't obvious until much, much later in the process. Would have been a lot easier if I'd ever touched python in my life. :-)

(I've opened bug 2223 for the binary install issue.)

Yeah calibre has a *ton* of dependencies, and since I tend to use cutting edge features of most libraries, getting it working in a source install can be challenging.

Well, it was a while ago, but from my fractured command history, it looks like I used:


85 wget http://mirrors.geekymedia.com/centos...edia1.i386.rpm
86 wget http://mirrors.geekymedia.com/centos...edia1.i386.rpm
87 wget http://mirrors.geekymedia.com/centos...edia1.i386.rpm
88 wget http://mirrors.geekymedia.com/centos...edia1.i386.rpm
149 wget http://mirrors.geekymedia.com/centos...media1.src.rpm
151 wget http://mirrors.geekymedia.com/centos...edia1.i386.rpm

Good luck!

I managed to compile PyThon2.6.2, Qt 4.5, PyQt-x11-gpl-4.5-snapshot-20090527, ...

I'm trying to run calibre on a remote serveur (through ssh -X )

it begins to run, but I get the following in the console :

Code:
[root@xxxxxxxxxx ~]# calibre

Any ideas of what's may be wrong ? (i'm not familiar nor to python, nor to Qt...)
