Download PYQT's source code from official website:

Official online said: "Before you can build PyQt4 you must has already built and installed SIP" means that you must first install SIP, so also download sip.

Decompression SIP compressed packet, enter the source directory, open the Readme, said is the current directory has a, the results I did not find. But a code was found. So I executed it.

1 $ python

Completed normally, and generated a makefile. I subconsciously performed make, and the result:

12345678 gcc-c -pipe -fPIC -O2 -w -DNDEBUG -I. -I/usr/include/python2.6 -o siplib.o siplib.csiplib.c:20:20: fatal error: Python.h: No such fileor directory #include <Python.h>                    ^compilation terminated.make[1]: *** [siplib.o] Error 1make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/hevake_lcj/Install/qt-downloads/sip-4.15.3/siplibmake: *** [all] Error 2

Usually this problem in the system does not install the components of the Development Board, only provides the library files, and does not provide the corresponding header files, can not be developed two times. The solution file is to install Python-devel

1 sudoyum installpython-devel

Complete the installation. Make again, and pass the compilation successfully. Then sudo make install, also very smooth. To test whether the installation is complete:
