OS: Mac OS X 10.7.5 Python Ver: 2.7.5

I have installed setuptools 1.0 with ez_setup.py from https://pypi.python.org/pypi/setuptools Then I download pip.1.4.1 pkg from https://pypi.python.org/pypi/pip/1.4.1.

Run (sudo) python setup.py install in iTerm shows that

Then I inputed pip install, the error message showed like that

I was preparing for my coding interview, thanks for clarifying this - ImportError: No module named pip in Python is not the simplest one. Will use it in my bachelor thesis
