Setting up Graphite / Django - MemoryError in Glyph

I'm setting up Graphite (under Django, of course) on a new box, and just saw the following error:

Exception Type: MemoryError
/opt/graphite/webapp/graphite/render/glyph.py in getExtents, line 221

specifically on the line: 
 F = self.ctx.font_extents()
 
turns out the problem was that I didn't have fonts installed.  New box, right?  Yah.
So, did apt-get install:
 
apt-get install cairo
apt-get install pycairo
apt-get install bitmap-fonts
 
The last one took a while.  But, now it's up and going!
 
 
BTW, the total list of apt-get I ran to get Graphite running on Centos-6.1 with python 2.6 was as follows:
 
apt-get install subversion
apt-get install httpd
apt-get install Django 
apt-get install mod_wsgi
apt-get install memcached
apt-get install python-devel
apt-get install  python-tools python-setuptools python-memcached python-pycurl
easy_install django-tagging
easy_install -U distribute
apt-get install libmysqlclient-dev
apt-get install mysql-libs
easy_install python-mysqldb
apt-get install MySQL-python
apt-get install cairo
apt-get install pycairo
apt-get install bitmap-fonts
 
Enjoy!
