Hi,

http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories is always my first stop when looking for 3rd party repors for CentOS and friends.

A quick search on that page for "python" lead me to http://iuscommunity.org/ which seems to have what you are looking for.

PUIAS Computational Repository provides python 3.3.0.

Install Howto:
x86: http://pkgs.org/centos-6-rhel-6/puia....i686.rpm.html
x86_64: http://pkgs.org/centos-6-rhel-6/puia...86_64.rpm.html

But if you want to install Python 3.3.2, then compile it from source (thats what i did)
I dont know your linux skill level, so i'm giving every step.

Code:
$ mkdir temp
$ cd temp
$ wget http://www.python.org/ftp/python/3.3.2/Python-3.3.2.tar.bz2
$ tar -xjvf Python-3.3.2.tar.bz2
$ cd Python-3.3.2
$ ./configure
$ make && make test
$ su
# make install
# exit
$ $ cd ../ && rm -rf Python-3.3.2
$ python3 -V
Python 3.3.2
Note: before compiling python, i had installed Development tools
Code:
# yum groupinstall "Development tools"
Hope it helped

Thank you very much mddesai fro your detailed help.

Do you think that i should yum install python3.3.0 or compiler from source 3.3.2?
Are yum instalaltion system wide and better compared from local instalaltion compiled from source?

Is there somehting better nd new in 3.3.2 opposed to 3.3.0 ?

YUM install vs compile ... which is better? Although it is for Thunderbird, same can applied for other packages.
