easy_install failure on 64 bit ubuntu

Reported by: solrize Owned by: xi
Priority: normal Component: pyyaml
Severity: major Keywords:


"easy_isntall pyyaml" doesn't work. The zip file fails to include a yaml.h file, leading to a bunch of compilation errors that I chopped. Either (preferably) any necessary headers should be included in the easy_install, or else the easy_install should check for their absence and say where to get them.

$ sudo easy_install pyyaml Searching for pyyaml Reading Reading Best match: PyYAML 3.09 Downloading Processing Running PyYAML-3.09/ -q bdist_egg --dist-dir /tmp/easy_install-ei0gpu/PyYAML-3.09/egg-dist-tmp-2VXmew build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.5/check_libyaml.c:2:18: error: yaml.h: No such file or directory build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.5/check_libyaml.c: In function ‘main’:

I can confirm the the same issue for Windows x64. Installer fails to install on x64 because it does not recognize Python x64 and if you run easy_install you will get the same error.

On Ubuntu 9.10 64bit, installing the libyaml-dev package seemed to fix everything:

sudo apt-get install libyaml-dev

(found this by doing "apt-cache search yaml" and taking a guess...)
