Running multiple versions of Python on the same host..

For my day job I am forced to run RHEL3 (and Centos3 on my desktop). I
want to be able to use a few applications that require Python 2.4.X but
RHEL3 ships with Python 2.2.3. I have tried to install and upgrade
Python 2.4.X many ways like using PyVault and doing a source based
install but each way has been fraught with problems from weird
dependency issues to screwing up 'yum'.

What is the best way to run multiple version of Python on the same
system?

thanks!

You could use chroot. Ask if you want more details.

Did you use the bootstrap RPM?

http://www.python.org/pyvault/centos...pyv.noarch.rpm

If you want to try again, you can ping the pyvault-users mailing list
for specific answers to error messages you are seeing during
installation.

If installing from source, 'make altinstall' will do everything but
link python to (for example python2.4. You can then run 'python2.4'
'python2.3',etc to use a particular version.

Call this a C++ programmers hang-up if you like. I don't seem to be able to define multiple versions of __init__ in my matrix class (ie to initialise either from a list of values or from 2 dimensions (rows/columns)). Even if Python couldn't resolve the __init__ to use on the basis of argument types surely it could do so on the basis of argument numbers??? At any rate - any suggestions how I code this????

Would there be issues (registry settings, environment variables, whatever) if a person tried to install versions 1.x and 2.x simultaneously on one Windows system? Windows 98, if it matters. (I can handle the file associations with no problem.) Thanks. **************************

I understand that Python has them, but PHP doesn't. I think that is because mod_php is built into apache, but mod_python is not usually in apache. If mod_python was built into apache, would python still have long running processes (LRP)? Do LRPs have to do with a Python interpreter running all the time? Or is it something else? I also understand that LRPs are the reason that shared hosting is less

Hi all, I have a mac mini running maocosx 10.5 leopard I want to deploy a django project on. My backend is MySQL, and I have it running as a 64- bit app. Of course, apache2 is also running as 64-bit. MySQLdb installs with the usual warnings after applying the various patches I found here and there. These patches consist of altering _mysql.c and site.cfg.
