Operating Systems Linux Ubuntu libxml2-dev

Hi again,

I use Ubuntu 8.10. I could not install xml-config. Although libxml2-dev is installed, ./configure cannot find xml-config.

Help me out please...

It might want libxml-dev, not libxml2-dev. In which case you'd probably want libxml too.

run dpkg -S on libxml2-dev (full path) and see. They are probably part of different packages

Thanks a lot!

libxml2-dev seems to be in

(perhaps this is not the place it should be)

I ran dpkg -S /usr/share/doc/libxml2-dev. It is in the path I wrote above.

What do I do now?

The command I gave should inform you of which package installed the selected file. That way, there should be no confusion as to whether it is the package you require or not. You can probably use apt-file to figure out which package provides the file you want.

Perhaps I should tell that I am quite new into using Linux.Smilie

Is apt-file used like

sudo apt-file xml-config

to find which packages have xml-config?

Ok, ignore my above message. I found out how to use apt-file.

It does not find xml-config anywhere.

Obviously not, or you would have it and it would work. Have you tried installing libxml and libxml-dev?
