Centos 8 : python-devel

Posted 04 August, 2020

You might find when you receive this error :

fatal error: Python.h: No such file or directory

The solution on Centos is to install python-devel package; In Centos 8 however this package was renamed due to the fact python 2.7 is no longer the default one, it has become 3. And this package was named w/o any suggestions;

No match for argument: python-devel

The solution is to add python version number :

yum install python3-devel
