Hi List,

I'm new to ckan and trying to install ckan spatial extension to linux (debian) machine.   Follow guide from https://github.com/okfn/ckanext-spatial/blob/master/README.rst, managed to setup PostGIS for my ckan database and installed libxml2 from base on guide from https://github.com/okfn/ckanext-spatial/blob/master/README.rst#setting-up-postgis.  However, when run the following command to create some DB tables for spatial search :

(pyenv) $ paster --plugin=ckanext-spatial spatial initdb [srid] --config=mysite.ini

I keep getting the following error :

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/ckan/default/bin/paster", line 9, in <module>
    load_entry_point('PasteScript==1.7.5', 'console_scripts', 'paster')()

    command = commands[command_name].load()

  File "/usr/lib/ckan/default/src/ckanext-spatial/ckanext/spatial/model/harvested_metadata.py", line 1, in <module>
    from lxml import etree
ImportError: No module named lxml

Not sure what I have missed ?!?!  Hope to get some pointer from the list.
