I am working at Rackbank & have created a Python 3.4 virtualenv using:

sudo virtualenv --no-site-packages -p /usr/bin/python3.4 venv
I have then activated the env using:

source venv/bin/activate
Once in the activated virtualenv i have tried:

sudo pip install https://www.djangoproject.com/download/1.7b1/tarball/
This installs django in the Python 2.7 directory and not in the virtual environment.. Checking with pip freeze shows no installed packages
