Hello

I have been struggling to install pycrypto on my server/website space. I am new to UNIX Shell. Has anyone been able to successfully install pycrypto?

I have followed this pages instructions: http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Bazaar#Installing_pycrypto

I then tried to EasyInstall it using:

But it fails again because I am not root or dont have the correct permissions.

Finally I followed this posts advice on how to overcome pycrypto’s errors. It worked nicely except I got a new error saying “No GCC found”.

Can you provide any advice on how I can install pycrypto? Any advice would be extremely helpful.
