Kerberos installation error, error: Setup script exited with error: command ‘i686-linux-gnu-gcc’ failed with exit status 1

I am trying to install python kerbos library, setup.py fails with following. I have already done sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get install python-dev(in that order). Here is the complete trackback of the process.

Answer

Based on the output here:

i686-linux-gnu-gcc: error: sh:: No such file or directory
i686-linux-gnu-gcc: error: 1:: No such file or directory
i686-linux-gnu-gcc: error: krb5-config:: No such file or directory
i686-linux-gnu-gcc: error: not: No such file or directory
i686-linux-gnu-gcc: error: found: No such file or directory

it looks like you’re missing krb5-config. You can install it from the libkrb5-dev package in Ubuntu or Debian.
