Missing additional helpful instructions to install TG2 under ubuntu heron/hardy linux

Reported by: venkatbo Owned by: mramm
Priority: normal Milestone: 2.0b1
Component: Documentation Version: trunk
Severity: normal Keywords: header libc6 dev package sprint



While following the "Install Turbogears 2" instructions at:


I observed an error while using the:

$ easy_install -i  http://www.turbogears.org/2.0/downloads/current/index tg.devtools

step under Ubuntu Heron/Hardy? 8.04.

Turns out that, even though gcc (4.2.3) was installed, no header (*.h) files were installed under /usr/include. As a result TG2 installation failed indicating that a whole bunch of the *.h files were missing.

The fix is to run:

"sudo apt-get install libc6-dev"

in additon to those listed in that section of the doc/page.

May be helpful to include a sentence in there that the "libc6-dev" pkg also needs to be installed along with "python-dev" etc.

Thanks, /venkat
