installation of gnuhealth: bug on Ubuntu 14.04

Question: What can this kind of error in the middle of the installation process mean? (see in the screenshot the suggested method for installing, namely taken from the official wikibooks book “GNU Heatlh”) . Has anybody an idea?


x86_64-linux-gnu-gcc -pthread -fno-strict-aliasing -DNDEBUG -g -fwrapv -O2 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -fPIC -I/tmp/pip_build_gnuhealth/lxml/src/lxml/includes -I/usr/include/python2.7 -c src/lxml/lxml.etree.c -o build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.7/src/lxml/lxml.etree.o -w

In file included from src/lxml/lxml.etree.c:239:0:

/tmp/pip_build_gnuhealth/lxml/src/lxml/includes/etree_defs.h:14:31: fatal error: libxml/xmlversion.h: No such file or directory

#include “libxml/xmlversion.h”


compilation terminated.

error: command ‘x86_64-linux-gnu-gcc’ failed with exit status 1

There we walk, till what? One key element of chain is broken again:


How long shall I wait? What happened to them? Who are they? And now what would be the next guess, first repairing the tor-chat wheel and then retürning to search the chat of gnu-health for posting my question? If not that, what else.

Or an other channel, namely the mailing lists?

Yes, I see the mailing list is quite frequent. So once more passwort username, uffuffuff would be the best option. I guess.
