Question Problem with libxml2-python-2.5.7


Hi,

I downloaded libxml2 ( >=2.5.7 ) and extracted it.

But when I tried python2.5 ./setup.py install

I got these error:
failed to find headers for libxml2: update includes_dir

What seems to be the problem?
Thanks for any help.

Still using Debian Etch ? ?

When an application ( configure ?) asks for "libxml2 ( >=2.5.7 )",
it means : any 'libxml2-dev' newer than 2.5.7 ... or 2.5.7 .
( You know from math that ' > ' means "bigger than" )

Debian Etch : # apt-get install libxml2-dev
will provide version 2.6.27 .

# apt-get install python-libxml2
will provide the python bindings, also version 2.6.27 .

The headers ( /usr/include/files.h ) are in the package libxml2-dev.
