easy_install failed in install pycrypto, met 'error: no src/config.h':

> sudo easy_install 
> http://ftp.dlitz.net/pub/dlitz/crypto/pycrypto/pycrypto-2.4.1.tar.gz

Then,  'error: no Python.h' occured. Ah, google is good:

> sudo apt-get install python-dev

Still failed... built it in hard way:

> tar xzvf  pycrypto-2.4.1.tar.gz

cd pycrypto-2.4.1
> sudo ./configure
> sudo python setup.py install

restarted apache2, failed with 'no Random', and found Crypto is 2.0.1 in 
log, dig deeply on internet:
Finally found an old version located in 
/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/Crypto, but what I installed is in /usr*
/local*/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/Crypto, well well

> sudo 
> mv /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/Crypto 
> /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/Crypto_bak

restarted apache and site was up and running, but there is no LDAP in 
'Authentication Method' configuration, only 'Standard registration' and 
'Legacy Authentication Module'. Are you kidding me?

another day had gone, and then, thanks God, I got a clue in apache2 
log, Crypto is still 2.0.1, the old one, kill me!!!:

> sudo 
> rm /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/Crypto 
> /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/pycrypto-2.0.1.egg-info

Now? I'm writing here blah blah...
