Python Question

Can't install module python pip

i'm new to python. I'd like to use pysnmp module, so i tried to install it with pip but i'm getting errors from it :

Failed building wheel for pycrypto


I tried on multiple system (Ubuntu, Debian and RH) and I always get the same error. How can i install pysnmp ? Or are there any other alternative to work with snmp with python ?

Shell Command :

sudo -H pip install pysnmp


Result :

Answer

src/MD2.c:31:20: fatal error: Python.h: No such file or directory

The actual error is that you do not have the dev files for python language (python.h not found).

So, install python-dev:

sudo apt-get install  python-dev
