Summary0001340: libxml2 headers installed in wrong directory with yum

I installed the libxml2-devel package and it put the header files in the /usr/include/libxml2/libxml directory. The main header file 'parser.h' references it's include files as <libxml/...> which will never be found.

Work around:

I created a /usr/include/libxml directory and copied the installed header file into the proper directory. (leaving the /usr/include/libxml2/libxml directory in place just in case.

TagsNo tags attached.

the libxml dir gets populated with the libxml-devel package rather than the libxml2-devel package. since both need to co-exist, this was the only sane manner to achieve the result
