Python 2.6
 
Hi,

I would like to know wheather it is possible to install python 2.6 on RedHat Ent Linux 5 (update8) using rpms?

I have checked by default Python 2.4 is installed.

Please suggest.

Very simple :

# yum install python26

The package python26 is in the EPEL.repo https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL
> http://ftp.crc.dk/fedora-epel/5/i386...l-release.html
>> # rpm -Uvh http://ftp.crc.dk/fedora-epel/5/i386...5-4.noarch.rpm

And : The default Python 2.4 can never be replaced :
All administrative tools are python2.4 applications.
