I'm trying to install on OpenSUSE 12.3 and so far i've completed all the steps but i'm stuck with installing one Python package. Here are the errors i see:


cbtest:~ # openerp-server -s
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/openerp-server", line 4, in <module>
    import pkg_resources
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources.py", line 2709, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources.py", line 686, in require
    needed = self.resolve(parse_requirements(requirements))
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources.py", line 584, in resolve
    raise DistributionNotFound(req)
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: pillow

When i download and install that package i get this:

rpm -i python-Pillow-2.5.1-4.1.x86_64.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        liblcms2.so.2()(64bit) is needed by python-Pillow-2.5.1-4.1.x86_64
        libopenjp2.so.7()(64bit) is needed by python-Pillow-2.5.1-4.1.x86_64
        libwebp.so.5()(64bit) is needed by python-Pillow-2.5.1-4.1.x86_64
        libwebpmux.so.1()(64bit) is needed by python-Pillow-2.5.1-4.1.x86_64
        python-imaging < 2.5.1 conflicts with python-Pillow-2.5.1-4.1.x86_64

If i want to remove imaging i get this:


zypper rm python-imaging
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
Resolving package dependencies...

The following packages are going to be REMOVED:
  python-imaging python-reportlab

2 packages to remove.
After the operation, 7.4 MiB will be freed.
Continue? [y/n/?] (y): n


How do i solve this?
