configure: error: --with-readline=yes (default) and headers/libs are not available

You need the development package for readline. Depending on the distribution of Linux you use, this will be called readline-dev, readline-devel, or something of that nature. Use your package manager to find and install it. mailing list PLEASE do read the posting guide and provide commented, minimal, self-contained, reproducible code. Received on Mon Jan 29 06:00:44 2007
