When you face error while installing Drozer

Finally after doing  a lot of research while getting while getting the following error while installing Drozer on OSx/ linux:

"The following error occurred while trying to add or remove files in the
installation directory:

    [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/test-easy-install-3959.pth'

The installation directory you specified (via --install-dir, --prefix, or
the distutils default setting) was:


Perhaps your account does not have write access to this directory?  If the
installation directory is a system-owned directory, you may need to sign in
as the administrator or "root" account.  If you do not have administrative
access to this machine, you may wish to choose a different installation
directory, preferably one that is listed in your PYTHONPATH environment


This happens due to the fact that you don't have root permissions or write privileges. So, to enable root privilege:

$ dsenableroot

And then ,

sudo easy_install

and you are done! Phew!! :)
