I've inherited a project on a hosted server and I'm trying to install and import numpy and nltk into the project. The OS is centOs 5.10 and the web app uses web.py. There are two version of python installed on the box both python 2.4 and python 3.3. The default is pointing to version 2.4, "python -V" = python 2.4.3.
I saw a lot of other questions like this but none of them answered the exact part I am having trouble with (actually installing the Python RPM). Someone on my system deleted /usr/bin/python and /usr/bin/python2.4 on my 64 bit CentOS 5.8 installation.
I downloaded python 3.3.0 which is latest version and i finished installing
now I want to run it in my centOS linux but when i type it in console "python" , python 2.7.0 which is bundled with os installation runs.
how can i change it to run 3?
I vaguely feel that i have to change the code about path in bin folder or something
I want to build Python 2.7.8 on my Ubuntu 12.04 machine, which has Python 2.7.3 as default distribution. I would like to "install" Python 2.7.8 but isolate it from Python 2.7.3 - meaning, I don't want to interfere at all with the distribution's default Python.
