When using pip to upgrade the django install from 1.0.4 to 1.1.4 in my Pinax virtualenv on webfaction, I'm getting the error: OSError[Errno 18] Invalid cross-device link. This happens in the python 2.6 os.py file, when trying to rename the directories appropriately to support the upgrade (e.g. pip install -U Django==1.1.4). Anyone know the solution to this? Thanks very much,

Nicolai

I know this is really late answer to this question but I just ran into the same problem and thought I'd post the solution that worked for me. If you define a TMPDIR is works.

 (pinax)[clarkcm@web1** hole9]$ TMPDIR=/home/clarkcm/tmp pip install -U Django==1.2
