Question Adding an extra python repo for 'yum' & finding 'pip' package


Hello i'm using CentOS v6.4

Need to install:

a) pip (so that i can successfully run 'pip install pymysql' module
b) python development tools

I wiped the whole Python installations away (leaving intact 2.6) but i wiped out pip at the process too.

Code:
nikos@superhost.gr [~]# yum search python-pip 
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror

Where i can find pip for Python 3.3.2 ?

and also how can i add some extra repo that has the latest Python 3.3.2 version inside it so to execute:

yum install latest_python_package ?

I'm tired of compiling local python instalaltions from source.

Thank you.

python-pip is in the EPEL repo, but it looks quite old, might not be suitable for your needs.

as for the newest? this is EL6, it's NOT meant to be "new" it's meant to be stable. you can install python3 but it won't, and shouldn't, be the very latest version.

Well firstly, you'd use the EPEL repo as I said, but did you think about NOT running "pip install pymysql"? Am I right in guessing you're following a random document you found online?

I don't *think* that the package you're after is available as python-mysql but you can install python software trivially without pip / easy_isntall - https://github.com/petehunt/PyMySQL#readme

I'am a bit confused. i have compiled from source python 3.3.2

Installation

# easy_install pymysql # ... or ... # python setup.py install

Python 3.0 Support

Simply run the build-py3k.sh script from the local directory. It will build a working package in the ./py3k directory.

Shall i try easy_install pymysql ?

or the poythin 3 support?

Code:
root@nikos [~]# which python
/usr/bin/python
root@nikos [~]# easy_install pymysql
Processing pymysql
Writing /root/pymysql/PyMySQL3-0.5/setup.cfg
Running PyMySQL3-0.5/setup.py -q bdist_egg --dist-dir /root/pymysql/PyMySQL3-0.5/egg-dist-tmp-bjpvc_
zip_safe flag not set; analyzing archive contents...
Adding PyMySQL3 0.5 to easy-install.pth file

Installed /usr/local/lib/python3.3/site-packages/PyMySQL3-0.5-py3.3.egg
Processing dependencies for PyMySQL3==0.5
Finished processing dependencies for PyMySQL3==0.5
root@nikos [~]#
Did i acted correctly? Did pymysql installed in the correct place where python 3.3.2 were also installed?
