    Hi Hans Christian,

    which version of reportlab do you prefer?

    I have problems on debian 6.0.5 with build-essential installed:

    easy_install reportlab


    Best match: reportlab 2.6


    /tmp/easy_install-TdH3sF/reportlab-2.6/src/rl_addons/rl_accel/_rl_accel.c:1280: error: ‘ttfonts_add32L’ undeclared here (not in a function)
    /tmp/easy_install-TdH3sF/reportlab-2.6/src/rl_addons/rl_accel/_rl_accel.c:1281: error: ‘hex32’ undeclared here (not in a function)
    /tmp/easy_install-TdH3sF/reportlab-2.6/src/rl_addons/rl_accel/_rl_accel.c:1282: error: expected ‘}’ before ‘unicode2T1’

    error: Setup script exited with error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1

      I installed it quite some time ago. I am running 2.5.

      >>> import reportlab >>> reportlab.Version '2.5'

      But since this is a build error you should be able to find some help. I had a search for '‘ttfonts_add32L’ undeclared here' and it looks like you need to also 'apt-get install' your python-dev first.

      Regards, HC
