Making easy_install work with Combinator

Thursday April 04, 2009
This is posted mainly for my own benefit, so that I won't have to re-remember the command-line options to make this work for the nth time in a row, but some of you may enjoy it:

    easy_install --prefix ~/.local/ --site-dirs ~/.local/lib/python2.5/site-packages your_package_here

Now that I've gone through and understood why that's necessary, I think I might be able to fix it in Combinator one day...
