Hi,

Webfaction provides Reportlab v2.4. However, i'd like to use v2.5 (or above).

So i ran (as described in http://docs.webfaction.com/software/python.html#installing-packages-with-pip)

pip-2.7 install reportlab --upgrade

However, it is a system package so i get

OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/reportlab-2.4-py2.7.egg-info'

What should i do?

pip seems to want to uninstall any detected package prior to running an upgrade of that package, and there doesn't seem to be a way to override that behavior.

You can use easy_install-2.7 instead, as it doesn't seem to have this problem:

easy_install-2.7 -U reportlab

Hope that helps!
