I have been trying to install python development package on my red hat machine but not able to find the package any where.

My server is a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.8 (Santiago)( x86_64 GNU/Linux) with python 2.6.6 on-board

The repo list dose not include the required package and i have no access to alter it also.

I have tried doing a "yum install python-devel" and "yum search .." but have not been successful.

From where can i grab hold of this package? Any external link available?


1.-> yum install epel-release

After that ;

[root@srv1 ~]# yum search python-devel
