Fail to Install RPi.GPIO

Hey there,

I fail to install the RPi.GPIO on my RPi 1 Rev. B with the latest OSMC.

I’ll do this steps:

  1. sudo apt-get update
  2. sudo apt-get install python-setuptools
  3. sudo apt-get install python-pip
  4. sudo pip install wheel
  5. sudo pip install rpi.gpio

But I’ll get the following errors…

What went wrong??`

See GPIO control - need some help - #4 by sam_nazarko

I’ll get the same error again…

Doesn’t look like you set up the CC variables

Try sudo apt-get install python-dev and then trying again.
