Pootle is an online translator. Neither the discussion forums nor Google are helpful with installing it on Dreamhost, so here goes.
It's written in Python, which I don't know. When I run "python setup.py install" (on one of the dependencies), it gives me...
error: could not create '/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/translate': Permission denied
Now, I understand what the problem is -- the script wants to install packages on the system-wide instance of Python, which only root can do. The question is, is there some workaround for this, like my own local instance of Python?
