Ultimately, I'm trying to install SaltStack on a super computer that has no internet connection. And I'm not allowed to hook it to the internet. So far, I have installed an entire yum repo on the server and a CPAN.
But the yum repo can't find SaltStack (I don't know why, but I do plan on doing another rsync of my yum repo tonight and updating it on the server...that said, this repo is only 3 months old), so I resorted to trying to install pip on this server, but yum also can't find pip or python-pip. So now, I have to figure out how to get pip installed from source on there and if there's a general, large dir of python modules I can rsync and just throw on this server.
