Adafruit_BBIO failure to install?

I’m trying my hand at this for the first time but im running across some issues. Im trying to install Adafruit_BBGPIO onto a BBB with Debian Lenny installed. Following the steps outlined here: https://learn.adafruit.com/character-lcd-with-raspberry-pi-or-beaglebone-black/usage I’m getting to the installation part of things where i run this command:

sudo pip install Adafruit_BBIO

At the end of it all im getting this error:

Cleaning up…
Command /usr/bin/python -c “import setuptools, tokenize;file=’/tmp/pip-build-gkkzPQ/Adafruit-BBIO/setup.py’;exec(compile(getattr(tokenize, ‘open’, open)(file).read().replace(’\r\n’, ‘\n’), file, ‘exec’))” install --record /tmp/pip-9dhrYO-record/install-record.txt --single-version-externally-managed --compile failed with error code 1 in /tmp/pip-build-gkkzPQ/Adafruit-BBIO
Storing debug log for failure in /root/.pip/pip.log

Now, i know that the page did mention to ignore certain errors and i did that but continuting further into attempting to run an example and it errors out when trying to import the Adafruit_BBIO.

Hopefully i have explained this well, Please allow me to clarify where i can. I just need help trying to get Adafruit_BBIO to actually install

Thanks You All!!

So what about? /root/.pip/pip.log

Adafruit_BBIO has only really been tested on Angstrom & Debian Wheezy/Jessie...

With Lenny, you might be on your own.

Regards,

Lenny . . . ? wow, wonder if the bash exploit has been patched in that release.
