Installing psycopg2 in centos6 with Python 2.6 and Python2.7 installed in the machine

When i use yum install python-psycopg2 , it installs it from python2.6 instead of python2.7. Using pip install psycopg2 does the same same thing and easy_install is the same result.

Trying to import it from the python2.7 shell, i get an error showing it is not available from that version.

I need some sort of direction/assistance please.
