Amazon’s EC2 image has yum, rpm installations, and the other niceities of Red Hat / Fedora brand Linux, and lightning fast local repo access.

Unfortunatley, pip doesn’t seem to be in the repo.

Useful pastable pip build + installation comands from this blog:

tar -xvf pip*.gz
cd pip*
sudo python install

Works like a charm.
