generally speaking, it is a bad idea to use multiple package managers -
just last week i had such a conflict where a pip package clobbered the
files from a parabola package

the only sane way to do this is to use pip, rubygems, or whatever never
as root but always install packages to your $HOME or even better in the
project tree itself - with python for example you build and run the
entire project always in a "virtualenv" which ensures that the pip
packages to not pollute the system - you should not ever need to be
root to install a python package and i would advise strongly against
the temptation
