  • and got the same error. Also this is my PYTHON_LIBRARY=/usr/lib/python2.7/config-x86_64-linux-gnu/libpython2.7.so – John G Jan 28 '17 at 17:31
  • okay after doing sudo apt-get install python-dev, python install.py completed without errors. now I'll see if YCM works. – John G Jan 28 '17 at 20:02
