can i configure IDLE to use python 3.2 on fedora?

Discussion in 'Python' started by Robert P. J. Day, Nov 5, 2009.

  1. on fedora 11 system, there is no python 3 package so i downloaded
    and manually installed (svn checkout) python pre-3.2 in
    /usr/local/bin. works fine, but if i install the python-tools
    package, "idle" that comes with it is hard-coded(?) to still refer to
    the officially-installed python-2.6. i see no way to configure idle
    to use the "python3" executable instead.

    is there a way? or am i just out of luck?
