On Debian testing (Jessie), when I try to install PIL or Pillow (python imaging libs) in a
pip I get the following error:
running egg_info writing Pillow.egg-info/PKG-INFO writing top-level names to Pillow.egg-info/top_level.txt writing dependency_links to Pillow.egg-info/dependency_links.txt warning: manifest_maker: standard file '-c' not found reading manifest file 'Pillow.egg-info/SOURCES.txt' reading manifest template 'MANIFEST.in' writing manifest file 'Pillow.egg-info/SOURCES.txt' running build_ext building 'PIL._imaging' extension creating build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.7/libImaging x86_64-linux-gnu-gcc -pthread -fno-strict-aliasing -DNDEBUG -g -fwrapv -O2 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -fPIC -IlibImaging -I/usr/local/include -I/usr/include -I/usr/include/python2.7 -I/usr/include/x86_64-linux-gnu -c _imaging.c -o build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.7/_imaging.o _imaging.c:76:20: fatal error: Python.h: No such file or directory #include "Python.h" ^ compilation terminated. error: command 'x86_64-linux-gnu-gcc' failed with exit status 1
I have installed all dependencies for Pillow, based on my experience with Wheezy, but it seems something is different with testing.
In fact I discovered another problem with libc6. The version I had was from experimental. After downgrading it to testing's version, I reinstalled all dependencies but now I get a different error:

It seems the experimental version of
libc6 messed things up, but I can't figure out what's wrong. Aptitude doesn't show any unmet dependencies and
aptitude install -f does nothing.
Also, if indeed the linux-headers are relevant, the ones I have installed are:
