Error when installing requirments.text (Python dependencies)

on 1/27/16, 11:16 PM 4,965 views

I am trying to do source installation of Odoo 9 on Ubuntu 14.04

Following the documentation of Odoo (https://www.odoo.com/documentation/9.0/setup/install.html#setup-install-source)

In the step :

$ pip install -r '/home/invendoi/odoo/doc/requirements.txt'

I got the following error

invendoi@invendoi:~$ pip install -r '/home/invendoi/odoo/doc/requirements.txt'

Downloading/unpacking sphinx==1.2.3 (from -r /home/invendoi/odoo/doc/requirements.txt (line 1))

Downloading mercurial-3.2.2.tar.gz (4.1MB): 4.1MB downloaded

Running setup.py (path:/tmp/pip_build_invendoi/mercurial/setup.py) egg_info for package mercurial

Python headers are required to build Mercurial but weren't found in /usr/include/python2.7/Python.h

Complete output from command python setup.py egg_info:

Cleaning up...

Command python setup.py egg_info failed with error code 1 in /tmp/pip_build_invendoi/mercurial

Storing debug log for failure in /home/invendoi/.pip/pip.log


What is the reason behind that ?
