Trying to install python sdk on centos 7

when doing: python3 -m pip install couchbase

I am getting this error:

compilation terminated.
error: command ‘gcc’ failed with exit status 1

----------------------------------------

Command “/usr/bin/python3 -u -c “import setuptools, tokenize;file=’/tmp/pip-build-pww_f0t9/couchbase/setup.py’;f=getattr(tokenize, ‘open’, open)(file);code=f.read().replace(’\r\n’, ‘\n’);f.close();exec(compile(code, file, ‘exec’))” install --record /tmp/pip-b0nmyjt7-record/install-record.txt --single-version-externally-managed --compile” failed with error code 1 in /tmp/pip-build-pww_f0t9/couchbase/

any assistance is appreciated!
thanks
