im trying to install MySqlDb for python on Redhat EL5. i downloaded the tar file and setup.cfg says its requires openssl-devel. i have openssl 0.9.8e installed on my system and its working good. where can i find openssl-devel ? i wasnt able to find tar file for devel. does it come along with the source ? i found openssl0.9.8e.tar file. my openssl is working now so i am a little worried about running the setup again on openssl. if it messup the current installation its will be an issue.
is it ok to run setup on openssl tar ? how is development different from source ? does it have more header files ?
thanks in advance
