receive error : "Configure : error: libxml2 must be installed"

Hi there!

I get the following error:

"configure: error: libxml2 must be installed"

When trying the following:

"./configure --prefix=/etc/valknut --enable-static --disable-shared"

What I want to do is the following:

I would like to get Valknut working on my fedora core 7 system. I have downloaded dclib-0.3.8 & valknut-0.3.11.

Also, I'm new to Linux. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try "yum"

Hi -

I think you should be able to try something like
yum install libxml2
"yum" is the "package manager" you can use to install stuff lib "libxml2", either from your CD, or from the Internet.

'Hope that helps .. PSM

proxy... ?

Hey man!

Thanks for the advice... Gave it a try but got the following error message:

[root@lnx valknut]# yum install libxml2
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
Could not retrieve mirrorlist error was
[Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (113, 'No route to host')> [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (113, 'No route to host')>
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: fedora

I think this may have something to do with my network setup. I have two squids set up in a hierarchy, one sibling and a parent. Is there a way to make yum talk through the proxy server?
