I am trying to install php5 to my fedora 14. But when I ./configure the error shows configure: error: xml2-config not found. Please check your libxml2 installation.. I installed libxml2 and when I run yum install libxml2 it says Package libxml2-2.7.7-3.fc14.i686 already installed and latest version Nothing to do . What is happening


You should install devel package.

  • I also run yum install libxml2-dev and it says No package libxml2-dev available. Error: Nothing to do !! – Nitish Dec 24 '12 at 8:46
  • Can you post the output of yum search libxml2 ? Does yum install libxml2-devel works better? – user130370 Dec 24 '12 at 8:50

    It's libxml2-devel. Also if you are unsure about a name again search for it: yum search libxml2 – faker Dec 24 '12 at 8:50
  • Thanks faker. It was libxml2-devel. – Nitish Dec 24 '12 at 8:59
