Ummm, the most current python-reportlab is: python-reportlab-1.20-5.fc5. 
python-reportlab-1.19 hasn't been used since March 30, 2005:

* Wed Mar 30 2005 Brian Pepple <bdpepple@ameritech.net> - 1.20-1.fc4
- Rebuild for Python 2.4.
- Update to 1.20.
- Switch to the new python macros for python-abi
- Add dist tag.

Hmm.. I see that there is a newer python-reportlab, but yum doesn't want to
install it.  It wants the older version.

Tried a "yum clean all" but that didn't help either.

Comment 3 Brian Pepple 2006-04-25 13:30:50 EDT
I'm guessing that the problem is due to the package going from an i386 to a
noarch package.  Try uninstall python-reportlab with yum, then installing it again.
Comment 4 Bernard Johnson 2006-04-25 13:46:39 EDT
It's not currently installed.  That was the first attempt to install.
Comment 5 Brian Pepple 2006-04-25 14:06:52 EDT
Hmmmm, that's very odd.  I just did a clean installation yesterday on a machine,
and was able to install it correctly.

I don't quite understand why a FE5 repo would even have python-reportlab-1.19
rpm.  When I have some more free time, I'll try to track down the problem.
Comment 6 Bernard Johnson 2006-11-15 18:22:40 EST
I was able to successfully install it from a clean FC6 machine.
