I just installed pip and got a few warning messages. Should I be concerned? Is there a way to check that pip was installed properly?

Here's what I did:

[mchenja@mycomp ~]$ sudo easy_install pip

You will almost certainly be fine. Try pip install pip and it should tell you "Requirements already satisfied". You could also try pip show pip and it will tell you it is installed and requires no other packages.
