how did you do that?


-by using YaST Software Management?

-zypper after becoming root using “su -” [just su probably won’t work,
and neither may “sudo zypper”]?

-manually download (from where) and run the rpm command?

-download source and compile locally?

-other (please give us the details)

and in a terminal please just pop open a terminal, x-term, konsole, etc
and type in the following:

ls -hal /usr/lib/libpytho*

and, then hit enter…then copy/paste the output AND input, from prompt
to prompt back to this thread using the instructions here:

should look something like this

denverd@linux-os114:~> ls -hal /usr/lib/libpytho*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1.5M Jan 18  2012 /usr/lib/


This is output of the command:

ls -hal /usr/lib/libpytho*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1.5M Aug  9 02:14 /usr/lib/

i installed libpython and python devel using zypper command line tool.

Something is wrong with python-devel installation. You should have /usr/lib/ which should be link to Library that you have is run-time library. To build programs you need version that ends with “.so”.

Also some more required files may be missing in this case (e.g. pkg-config files that are part of python-devel).

What are results of

rpm -qi python-devel
rpm -V python-devel

Also are you using 32 or 64 bit installation?
