The easiest way is to use Fedora's package management system. If you don't know how to use it, then read the documentation.

This thread is really more to do with installing software than actually programming in Python, so I've reported it to be moved to a more appropriate place.

Fedora 13 : Python 2.6.4 is installed by default.
And cannot be changed :
All admin tools + yum uses the run-time python-2.6.4.

# yum install python-devel
will provide python-devel-2.6.4-25.fc13, i.e. the development files.

almost all the tools in fedora are BUILT with the VERY VERY new version of python ( INSTALLED by default )
you can NOT change that version !!!


also fedora IS NOT CALLED "Fedora core" .there IS NO CORE IN THE NAME !!!
the "core" part was DROPPED years and years ago

now there ale a lot ( by that i mean most) still use python 2.4 and 2.5

now it is " possible " to install then along side of 2.6.4 .
But that can be dangerous ,VERY dangerous , you might kill the operating system if you are not careful

WHAT????
you can save them wherever you want to , so long as you have read/right permission .
This is NO DIFFERENT than any other operating system !
