I'm trying to install Review Board (http://review-board.org) with  
python-setup tools and "sudo easy_install ReviewBoard", but this  
fails as follows:

easy_install ReviewBoard

  a more recent version first.

(Currently using setuptools 0.6c5 (/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages))
error: Setup script exited with 2

Unfortunately, the python-setuptools for CentOS 5 is version  
0.6c5-2.  I already have python-imaging-1.1.5-5 installed, but the  
configuration is trying to install PIL 1.1.6.  I've never used  
easy_install/python-setuptools before (I'd never heard of it until I  
read the installation instructions for Review Board), so I don't know  
if it's possible to modify the configuration files to use PIL 1.1.5.   
Or if there is another/better way to install Review Board.  So before  
I re-invent the wheel, has anyone else successfully installed Review  
Board on CentOS 5 and is willing to share their experience?

Thanks,
Alfred
