I am trying to get
mod_wsgi 3.3 to work. When I run
make it is telling me that I am missing the Python developer package. How do I get and install the Python developer package?
The error I get is as follows:
mod_wsgi.c:135:20: error: Python.h: No such file or directory mod_wsgi.c:138:2: error: #error Sorry, Python developer package does not appear to be installed. mod_wsgi.c:142:2: error: #error Sorry, mod_wsgi requires at least Python 2.3.0 for Python 2.X. mod_wsgi.c:150:2: error: #error Sorry, mod_wsgi requires that Python supporting thread. mod_wsgi.c:153:21: error: compile.h: No such file or directory mod_wsgi.c:154:18: error: node.h: No such file or directory mod_wsgi.c:155:20: error: osdefs.h: No such file or directory
System (Amazon EC2 instance)
- Apache 2.2.16 (Unix)
- Amazon Linux(Red Hat 4.4.4-13) AMI Beta Version 2011.02
- Python 2.6.6
yum install python-devel will work.
yum doesn’t work then use
apt-get install python-dev
For me none of the packages mentioned above did help.
I finally managed to install
lxml after running:
sudo apt-get install python3.5-dev
If you use yum search you can find the python dev package for your version of python.
For me I was using python 3.5. I ran the following
yum search python | grep devel
Which returned the following
I was then able to install the correct package for my version of python with the following cmd.
sudo yum install python35u-devel.x86_64
This works on centos for ubuntu or debian you would need to use apt-get
