ImageScience/attachment_fu on MediaTemple

Hey all,

I’m attempting to get a small project running on MediaTemple using
attachment_fu on one of my models. I assumed that image_science would be
the
way to go, since MediaTemple provides a customized version for their
Rails
Container. I installed it and all of the pre-reqs (hoe, etc) from the MT
gem
( http://gems.mediatemple.net/) server, and all appeared to be well.
However, when I fire up irb and require ‘image_science’ it barfs on the
FreeImage.h include. I know that FreeImage needs to be installed for
ImageScience to work, since ImageScience uses FreeImage for the actual
processing. However, it appears that MT doesn’t have it installed. Has
anyone managed to get this to work on MT?

Also, I thought about falling back to RMagick instead, but they don’t
have a
pre-compiled version for the container, and I can’t compile one because
it
can’t find ImageMagick.

Any ideas would be appreciated…

Thanks!
