@xahlee Never use
sudo easy_install. I don't know why it's in all the manuals. Always use:
pip install --user← that USER is super important. You should never let pip or cargo or any other language manager ever touch your system packages. gem also has a
gem install --userwhich you should use to. You can always wipe/reset your home directory. The system is much more difficult.
