I installed calibre-0.8.64 using puppy package manager. there were alot of dependencies. it wouldnt start looked to be a problem with pil-1.1.7 even though the packages seemed to be installed. I reinstalled pil-1,1,7 and calibre started! but when I try to create a book from a news source I get this: (at the end you see the error message.) what to do?

Calibre changes very often...I've found it very easy to extract the files to
/mnt/home and run it from there(Slack05.5, Raring)

If copy move the CalibreLibrary out of /root and place it in mnt/home it will save a lot of space.

Use the above method you do not need dpendencies, etc., as Calibre is complete, ready to run.
