Hi Jose,

I incurred in the exactly same problem.
The way I solved it (after a lot of struggle to be precise) was to install
yt on the system python instead of using the yt install script, which
relates to its own python.

You can do that by
(0.remove the current yt installation and the related python)
1.downloading yt
2.going in the yt folder and build yt through the command: python
./setup.py build after ensuring that your pythonpath includes the directory
   It will not work the first time, because you need to satisfy all the yt
dependancies, but through the errors you get you can install the
dependencies one by one.
3.finally you can install yt by going in the yt directory and typing:
python ./setup.py install --prefix=.../directory_where_you_want_yt
4.it is possible that yt will show errors during the use because of the
fact that non vital dependencies are not satisfied, if you encounter those
errors just install those dependencies when it happens.

Hope this helps, cheers,
