While doing samba installation I got stuck in the configuring step. The
output of ./configure gives me the following error:-

Checking for custom code
: Could not find the python development headers

/usr/src/samba-4.3.4/wscript:98: error: the configuration failed (see

My wscript file on line 98 shows:

I have set my python version as 2.6.5 and tried to change it to 2.7.11 but
for some reason it is not showing up in ./configure outputs. So is it
showing this error due to python version 2.6.5 (not able to find python
development headers)?

How do I solve this?
