Some packages which utilize libxml2 (such as GNOME Doc Utils) need the Python module installed to function properly and some packages (such as GNOME Panel) will not build properly if the Python module is not available.
Install libxml2 by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr && make
To test the results, issue: make check.
Now, as the root user:
--with-history: If this option is used, it enables readline support when running xmlcatalog in shell mode.
When using history support, make check will hang forever if either /etc/inputrc or ~/.inputrc has the option show-all-if-ambiguous turned on.
determines the compile and linker flags that should be used to compile and link programs that use libxml2.
is used to monitor and manipulate XML and SGML catalogs.
parses XML files and outputs reports (based upon options) to detect errors in XML coding.
libraries provide the functions for programs to parse files that use the XML format.
