I'm literally cut-n-pasting from the website instructions. (except for the first 2 of course)

$ cd /opt/calibre
$ rm -fR *
$ wget -O- http://calibre.kovidgoyal.net/downlo...e-0.6.9.tar.gz | tar xvz
$ cd calibre*
$ python setup.py build && sudo python setup.py install

The 'python setup.py build' command is the one that fails. Then I manually
copy those files into place & re-run that last command line and it completes successfully, and then I run the final 'sudo calibre_postinstall'. (is that last step even needed anymore? it appears to do the same, or similar stuff as the last part of the install command.)

Not sure it matters, but this is on Ubuntu Karmic.
