Python SDK fails to install


Here’s the output while trying to ‘pip install couchbase’.

I have installed libcouchbase (even though the documentation that I’m reading does not specify that it needs to be installed) but still no luck.

Ensure you have at least version 2.4 of libcouchbase installed (though you may need a more recent one such as 2.5 for other features).
