I'm getting a strange output when trying to install for a project. Any clue as to what I'm doing wrong?

I got a similar error: – ZCJ Feb 14 '12 at 6:47
@ZCJ The output says taht webtest is successfully installed. open ipython and try >>>import webtest, if it will successfully come out that means it is installed. :) – shashaDenovo Feb 14 '12 at 6:54
It doesn't say 'successfully installed' anywhere on the output of sudo python install; does the writing ... from line 10 mean that it's installed? – ZCJ Feb 14 '12 at 7:04
@ZCJ: can you try the following, start python prompt, write import webtest and try any command like webtest.__package__, if it works means it is installed properly, NOTE : it tries to resolve the dependencies of WebOb using, make sure it is accessible from your machine. – avasal Feb 14 '12 at 9:14
