You have a media file (boot.ogg) which pyglet is trying to play using 
AVbin, but you don't have AVbin.

As far as I know, pip is incapable of handling non-Python dependencies. I 
suggest you try your system's package manager:


sudo aptitude install AVbin


sudo apt-get install AVbin


sudo yum install AVbin

and hopefully your distro will already support the latest, or at least 
working, version.
