UPDATE: Installation of Products.OpenXml appears to work happily with buildout when I’m using z3c.recipe.staticlxml to build lxml separately from having to easy_install or install system-wide packages.
So it’s almost Christmas time and I’m still slaving away working. It’s all about commitment.
Today in my life I’ve been trying to install the OpenXml product for Plone (using buildout, of course):
david@computer:~/buildout/instance$ ./bin/buildout Uninstalling zopepy. Uninstalling instance. Updating plone. Updating zope2. Updating productdistros. Installing instance. Getting distribution for 'Products.OpenXml'. Got Products.OpenXml 1.0.1. Getting distribution for 'openxmllib'. Got openxmllib 1.0.3. Getting distribution for 'lxml>=1.3.0,&lt;2.0.0dev'. Building lxml version 1.3.6 ERROR: /bin/sh: xslt-config: not found ** make sure the development packages of libxml2 and libxslt are installed **ERROR: /bin/sh: xslt-config: not found ** make sure the development packages of libxml2 and libxslt are installed **ERROR: /bin/sh: xslt-config: not found
And then 50,000 errors follow, making this message hard to find. Either way, the end result was that lxml wasn’t able to install.
Solution: install libxslt and its dev counterpart plus the relevant Python bindings on your system. In Ubuntu 8.10, that’s libxslt1.1, libxslt1-dev, and python-libxslt1.
All good now.
Update: Turns out Centos 5 (Red Hat) is has different package names. Try yum install libxslt libxslt-devel libxslt-python as root for Centos.
Future response: Just use z3c.recipe.staticlxml and be done with it all. No need for system level packages and it all just works.Go Top
