Problem in usable Python.h header file


I am installing GNU Radio 3.0 on Linux Mandriva Official 2007.0, when I
trying to do ./configure I receive an error like “unable to find usable
Python.h header file”

I found my Python.h file is in /usr/local/include/python2.4 whereas .
/configure command alwasy look for /usr/linclude/python2.4

I used export PYTHONPATH=/usr/local/include/python2.4 but that is not
working. Can someone tell me where is the problem, and what do i need to
to resolve this issue?

Thank you.

Python 2.4 did not work with GNU Radio 2.8 (so we used 2.3). I’m not
if it works with 3.0 or not. You may want to try Python 2.3.

Folks, GNU Radio works fine with Python 2.3 and 2.4.

There’s something suspicious about Python.h being found in
/usr/local/include/*. This would indicate that somebody built python
from source, which is definitely NOT required.
