installing plone 4.1.3 in kubuntu 11.10, zlib error, _sha256 error, openssl error and many more

Was about to bang my head into the wall to fix various error coming while installing plone 4.1.3 in my new kubuntu 11.10 installation.
Also I tried to get help in support but we should not expect our friends working in new years vacation..

copied from chat log there:
I am having this problem
[22:49] described in the link
[22:49] I want to use the plone python
[22:49] but my install fails like this:
[22:49] Compiling and installing readline local libraries … Installing Python 2.6.7. This takes a while… Patching for Debian/Ubuntu Multiarch Patching for thread size Patching for disabled ssl2 Installing distribute… /home/tareq/DATA/projects/SITS_FOLDER/sits_4_1/Python-2.6/bin/easy_install miss
[22:49] and in log file
[22:50] File “/home/tareq/DATA/projects/SITS_FOLDER/sits_4_1/Python-2.6/lib/python2.6/”, line 138, in sha224 = __get_builtin_constructor(‘sha224’) File “/home/tareq/DATA/projects/SITS_FOLDER/sits_4_1/Python-2.6/lib/python2.6/”, line 66, in __get_builtin_constructor import _sha256 ImportError: No module named _sha256
[22:50] Please help
[22:50] I am trying to install plone4.1.3
[22:50] my linux version is kubuntu 11.10
[22:50] 64

$sudo apt-get install build-essential
go to your plone unified installer folder
./ standalone

I am not 100% sure that the sudo apt-get install build-essential was the fix as I have installed various things in my kubuntu,
But the install worked just after I did sudo apt-get install build-essential
Thanks to this blog
Hope this can save someone from banging head


Work is fun!
