Troubleshooting installation with pip

If during the installation process with pip you find the error fatal error: Python.h: No such file or directory, make sure your Linux distribution has the necessary development packages for Python. They contain header files that are needed for the compilation of packages such as MDAnalysis. These packages will be listed as “python3-dev” or similar. For example, in Fedora 32, one can use the command dnf install python3-devel to install additional system packages with Python headers.

Similarly, if during the installation process you find the error gcc: fatal error: cannot execute ‘cc1plus’: execvp: No such file or directory, make sure you have development tools for gcc and c++. For example, in Fedora 32, one can use the command dnf install gcc-c++ to install additional system packages with c++ development tools.
