system requirements for python 2.4

ben
I'm trying to upgrade python from 2.2 to 2.4 on a RH9 system, and can't
find any rpm that will let me install it.
Is FC3 required for python 2.4?

FWIIW, we use Python 2.4 on RH8 and FC2 systems. In both cases, built
from scratch, following the build instructions.

Ah, I figured I would have to resort to that.

Thanks.

No. However, you may have to build Python yourself. Try using the source
RPM; if that fails to work, either correct the spec file, or build
directly from the pydotorg sources.

And you don't want to install an rpm with 2.4 that overwrites the 2.2
version that came with Red Hat. Many of the Red Hat configurations
tools rely on the existing 2.2 version so you need to keep it there.

You want to install python 2.4 somewhere else (/usr/local is the usual
place).

It really isn't difficult. Grab the .tgz file and untar it, cd into the
python directory, execute "./configure; make;make install" assuming you
have write permissions on /usr/local; if not su to root before doing
"make install".

Yes, I already figured that out. I put python 2.4 in /usr/local/bin,
and then, when I installed zope (which is the reason for the new
python), I had to tell it where the newer python was.
