  • 1.  lxml For Python3

    Posted Wed June 16, 2021 11:38 AM
    Hello; we are running AIX 7.1 and need to add lxml to our Python3 installation.  If you have had success in doing this would you please share your steps? Thank-you in advance.

    Tried to install lxml-4.6.3 using Python pip and the source files. However, it fails and reports that it is missing two dependencies, the libxml2 and libxslt development packages.  However, rpm reports that both of these are installed. I do not have very much experience in this arena so any assistance would be much appreciated.

    I did not face any issue in installing lxml python module using pip.
