Error when trying to download Scrapy

Postby brandnew22 » Tue Aug 13, 2013 1:20 am

Trying to download Scrapy for Python. I get this error:

Downloading ... 18dac42236
Processing lxml-3.2.3.tar.gz
Running lxml-3.2.3/ -q bdist_egg --dist-dir /tmp/easy_install-rbld5V/lxml-3.2.3/egg-dist-tmp-F8R_lI
Building lxml version 3.2.3.
Building without Cython.
Using build configuration of libxslt 1.1.24

warning: no files found matching '*.txt' under directory 'src/lxml/tests'
unable to execute gcc-4.2: No such file or directory
error: Setup script exited with error: command 'gcc-4.2' failed with exit status 1

I used sudo command and ran easy_install but no luck. Any help getting this downloaded will be much appreciated.

It looks like you don't have gcc installed. In OS X I believe that means installing the big old Xcode package.
Due to the reasons discussed here we will be moving to on October 1, 2016.

This forum will be locked down and no one will be able to post/edit/create threads, etc. here from thereafter. Please create an account at the new site to continue discussion.
