When trying to install Sphinx 1.1.3 on a TYPO3 6.1 site I am getting an 
error. Everything seems to go fine until I get to:

Processing dependencies for Sphinx==1.1.3dev-20131114
Searching for uuid>=1.30
Reading http://pypi.python.org/simple/uuid/
Best match: uuid 1.30
Processing uuid-1.30.tar.gz
Running uuid-1.30/setup.py -q bdist_egg --dist-dir 
error: Setup script exited with error: SandboxViolation: 
mkdir('/tmp/easy_install-08FFU8/uuid-1.30/uuid.egg-info',) {}

The package setup script has attempted to modify files on your system
that are not within the EasyInstall build area, and has been aborted.

This package cannot be safely installed by EasyInstall, and may not
support alternate installation locations even if you run its setup
script by hand.  Please inform the package's author and the EasyInstall
maintainers to find out if a fix or workaround is available.

How can I proceed from here?

Thank you -- Tony
