compilation - error:command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1 on CentOS

limits #include (4)

" error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1 ". the installation failed because of missing python-devel and some dependencies.

the best way to correct gcc problem:

You need to reinstall gcc , gcc-c++ and dependencies.

For python 2.7

$ sudo yum -y install gcc gcc-c++ kernel-devel
$ sudo yum -y install python-devel libxslt-devel libffi-devel openssl-devel
$ pip install "your python packet"

For python 3.4

$ sudo apt-get install python3-dev
$ pip install "your python packet"

Hope this will help.

I'm trying to install lxml package on CentOS using sudo pip install lxml and its throwing this error right at the end:


error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1


Command /usr/bin/python -c "import setuptools;__file__='/tmp/pip-build-root/lxml/';exec(compile(open(__file__).read().replace('\r\n', '\n'), __file__, 'exec'))" install --record /tmp/pip-PjviBq-record/install-record.txt --single-version-externally-managed failed with error code 1 in /tmp/pip-build-root/lxml
Storing complete log in /root/.pip/pip.log

[[email protected]-centos-1 ~]$ error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1
bash: error:: command not found

Is gcc installed?

sudo yum install gcc

I bet you have to install libxml2-devel or libxml++-devel or even python-devel. But it is only a wild guess, not seeing the actual error from the log file. But it seems gcc is missing either a header file or a library file.

I used this:

yum install unixODBC.x86_64

Depending on the version of centos could change the package, you can search like this:

yum search unixodbc
