gcc and libssh


hi all,
i try to compile a c code which uses SSH library,but i get this error
Code:
libssh.h: No such file or directory
i searched and i found that This happens if a library used for linking is not present in the standard library directories used by gcc.
By default, gcc searches the following directories for header files:
/usr/local/include/
/usr/include/

and the following directories for libraries:
/usr/local/lib/
/usr/lib/
i update my libssh from libssh-0.4.2-1.fc13.i686 to libssh-0.4.6-1.fc13.i686,
and there are files called libssh.so.4 and libssh.so.4.0.2 in /ur/lib,
but i still can't compile it with this command:
gcc test.c
any help would appreciated.

.h is a programming header file. You probably want to install libssh-devel.

Easily found with : # yum provides */libssh.h

All packages required for compiling software must be <name>-devel .

thank you AlucardZero,
after installing libssh-devel,i have libssh in /usr/include/libssh
and with command:
Quote:
gcc -Wall -I/usr/include/libssh test.c
it runs,so now i just have to add this path to /usr/local/lib/ & /usr/lib/ where gcc will search for libraries!
