error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1 on CentOS
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/setup.py';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 [hg@user-centos-1 ~]$ error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1 bash: error:: command not found
Is gcc installed?
sudo yum install gcc
" 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 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.
How i solved
# yum update # yum install -y https://centos7.iuscommunity.org/ius-release.rpm # yum install -y python36u python36u-libs python36u-devel python36u-pip # pip3.6 install pipenv
I hope it will help Someone to resolve "gcc" issue.
sudo yum install python36 python36-devel python36-libs python36-tools
if using python36, this is the best path for set up. Corrected this error for me on an aws ec2 instance
