Hi All

I need help in installing python development packages (python27-devel) on
Centos5.8. Upgrading hardware is not an option as of now.

I've installed python2.7 in the same machine by
$ wget --no-check-certificate
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/Python2.7
$ make altinstall

Now I need help in installing python-devel package for 2.7.

$ sudo yum info python2.7-devel gives no info. Whereas the package is there
for python26-devel.

Tried many suggestions after googling but still no luck. Any help or
pointer for exact steps will be great.
