lxml support in DjangoStack?

On a DjangoStack 1.2.3-0 instance on EC2, I’m trying to install an application which has a dependency on the lxml Python library (, but I can’t figure out how to get lxml into the Bitnami python stack.

I’ve tried to easy_install it, but easy_install fails with hundreds of compiler errors because compiling lxml from source is apparently quite tricky and there’s no Ubuntu binaries available for download.

Any suggestions?

Django Stack does not inlcude libxsl library. Try to install libxsl1-dev and build-essentials using ‘apt-get’.
