Dear all,

I am a newbie to Python community. For my project, I tried to install
Pystemmer 1.0.1 (
PyStemmer-1.0.1.tar.gz) on my linux ubuntu 7.10 machine but
unsuccessful. It produced the following error:

running install
running build
running build_ext
building 'Stemmer' extension
gcc -pthread -fno-strict-aliasing -DNDEBUG -g -O2 -Wall -Wstrict-
prototypes -fPIC -Isrc -Ilibstemmer_c/include -I/usr/include/python2.5
-c libstemmer_c/src_c/stem_ISO_8859_1_danish.c -o build/temp.linux-

                 from libstemmer_c/src_c/../runtime/header.h:2,
                 from libstemmer_c/src_c/stem_ISO_8859_1_danish.c:4:
/usr/lib/gcc/i486-linux-gnu/4.1.3/include/limits.h:122:61: error:
limits.h: No such file or directory
error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1

Did anyone experience this before?

Any comment/suggestion is highly appreciated.

Thank you.

Best regards,
