    I have been trying to get Imager to work on my OS X 10.4 machine, but
    I have had no luck so far. I am trying to use Imager as part of
    Simpleviewer (http://www.airtightinteractive.com/simpleviewer/), and
    I am using the Perl script from their site (see http://

    The error message I keep getting is:
    Can't locate loadable object for module Imager in @INC (@INC
    contains: /System/Library/Perl/5.8.6/darwin-thread-multi-2level /
    System/Library/Perl/5.8.6 /Library/Perl/5.8.6/darwin-thread-

    darwin-thread-multi-2level/Imager.pm line 153.
    Compilation failed in require at buildgallery.pl line 18.
    BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at buildgallery.pl line 18.

    What could this be caused by? I have read that this may be caused by
    a missing or misplaced .so file, but I could not fine more details
    anywhere (and I could not find that file anywhere on my system or in
    the original Imager distribution).
    By the way, I downloaded and built Imager (0.45) through the CPAN
    shell (install Imager), and everything worked and tested OK.

    Thanks for your help.
