Python Question

I can't install python-ldap

When I run the following command:

sudo pip install python-ldap


I get this error:


In file included from Modules/LDAPObject.c:9:

Modules/errors.h:8: fatal error: lber.h: No such file or directory


Any ideas how to fix this?

Answer

The website says that python-ldap is based on OpenLDAP, so you need to have the development files (headers) in order to compile the Python module. If you're on Ubuntu, the package is called libldap2-dev.

sudo apt-get install libsasl2-dev python-dev libldap2-dev libssl-dev
