Hi there,

This is because rpy that is currently available was compiled for R1.8.1, 
and they have not released a compile for R1.9.1

There is an rpy mailing list where you can post your concern. you can get 
to it fromt he rpy pages as sourceforge.

You will need to find a copy of R 1.8.1 to use with that version. I will 
let you know if I find a copy as I have been looking for one myself.
