Upgrading Python on Red Hat 7.2?

Discussion in 'Python' started by Leif K-Brooks, Jan 28, 2004.

  1. I have an ancient server with Red Hat 7.2 and Python 1.5.2. I want to
    install mod_python, but I'll need a version of python from some time
    after the stone age to do that. Up2date is broken (missing Python
    module, go figure), so I can't use that. The latest RPMs seem to be for
    Red Hat 9, will they work with 7.2? If not, will building from source
    make versioned binaries only (/usr/bin/pythonX.X instead of
    /usr/bin/python)?

    The default build

    > ./configure
    > sudo make install


    will install to /usr/local/ and thus will not overwrite
    /usr/bin/python.
