Hello.

Has anybody already meet the problem like this? -
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'HTML_PARSE_RECOVER'

When I run scrapy, I get

File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/scrapy/selector/factories.py",
line 14, in <module>
libxml2.HTML_PARSE_NOERROR + \
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'HTML_PARSE_RECOVER'


When I run
python -c 'import libxml2; libxml2.HTML_PARSE_RECOVER'

I get
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'HTML_PARSE_RECOVER'

How can I cure it?

Python 2.7
libxml2-python 2.6.9
2.6.11-gentoo-r6


I will be grateful for any help.

DETAILS:

scrapy crawl lgz -o items.json -t json

Apparently, the versions of "scrapy" and "libxml2" do not fit.

Check with which "libxml2" versions, your "scrapy" version can work
and then install one of them.

I believe ftp://xmlsoft.org/libxml2/libxml2-2.8.0.tar.gz was what your looking for. Submit a ticket for the docs to get updated if your feeling generous.

2.6.11-gentoo-r6

That version of libxml2 is way too old and doesn't support parsing
real-world HTML. IIRC, that started with 2.6.21 and got improved a bit
after that.

Get a 2.8.0 installation, as someone pointed out already.
