I’m tearing my hair out! (Not much left!) When I run easy_install -U scikit-learn as admin I get the following error:
Admin$ easy_install -U scikit-learn
error: can't create or remove files in install directory The following error occurred while trying to add or remove files in the installation directory: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/test-easy-install-42472.pth' The installation directory you specified (via --install-dir, --prefix, or the distutils default setting) was: /Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/ Perhaps your account does not have write access to this directory? If the installation directory is a system-owned directory, you may need to sign in as the administrator or "root" account. If you do not have administrative access to this machine, you may wish to choose a different installation directory, preferably one that is listed in your PYTHONPATH environment variable.
here is my system info:
Running Yosemite 10.10.5 Python 2.7 “which python” yields /usr/bin/python “which easy_install” yields /usr/bin/easy_install
I’ve tried everything and haven’t seen any good answers to this on various forums. If anyone can help, I’d really appreciate it!!!
