Hi there,

Thanks for your feedback! It looks like you didn't install the headers 
of Python itself, which are needed to compile some of the extension 
packages that Grok needs to function (they're needed to install any 
Python C extension).

You can install the 'python2.4-dev' package on Ubuntu to make this work. 
One way is to use the package manager. On the command-line you can do:

$ sudo apt-get install python2.4-dev

After this hopefully things should install smoothly, but if not, please 
do let us know again!



P.S. Do we have the python-dev requirement documented somewhere on 
grok.zope.org? I think we should update the main tutorial text...
