I have two python-frameworks installed on my Mac OS X 10.6.8: one standard (/usr/bin/python) and now I installed 3.3.

I have already figured out that pip is installing things into site-packages but at the standard-python, now I need it to do this not for python 2.6.1, but for the new 3.3.

Can anybody help me with this?

What is the path of the 3.1 version, i.e. how is its binary called and where is it on your system? –  slhck Mar 29 '13 at 16:59
Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.3/ –  noircc Mar 29 '13 at 17:07
binary is called python3 –  noircc Mar 29 '13 at 17:08
Is pip in that 3.3's bin folder? If so, you could symlink it to /usr/bin/pip3, for example. –  slhck Mar 29 '13 at 17:09
