I try to do run rosinstall on my mac book pro:

delirium-tremens:~ serge$ rosinstall ~/ros/ "

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/rosinstall", line 5, in <module>
    pkg_resources.run_script('rosinstall==0.5.16', 'rosinstall')
line 442, in run_script
    self.require(requires)[0].run_script(script_name, ns)
line 1167, in run_script
    exec script_code in namespace, namespace
line 23, in <module>

ImportError: No module named yaml


I guess because rosintall do not use the right Python path.
How did you install rosinstall ?
