What repo is ok to use to install python3-devel on CentOS 7 ?

I seem to find only Fedora and OpenSuse versions.

yum install python3-devel
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base: mirrors.coreix.net
 * epel: ftp.lysator.liu.se
 * extras: mirrors.coreix.net
 * updates: mirrors.coreix.net
No package python3-devel available.

    CentOS 7 did not ship with Python 3 in the repositories. What are you trying to accomplish? – Michael Hampton Aug 3 '15 at 1:00

You can always activate the EPEL Repository, it has a python34-devel package available.

  • Philipp: welcome to SF. Concise, informative, well-referenced answer - +1 from me, I hope you stay around and keep it up. – MadHatter Aug 21 '15 at 7:17
  • Is the EPEL repository activated by default when installed? I have it installed, but still do not find a python 3 devel package... – sequence_hard Mar 27 '17 at 12:41
  • I can't comment on the first answer, so I add an answer. stackoverflow.com/questions/43047284/… provides a way to find and install the package. find packages: yum search python3 | grep devel, choose a package (e.g., python3-devel.x86_64), and install the package: yum install -y python3-devel.x86_64 – Change-the-world Dec 8 '17 at 6:15
