how to update python in fedora?

P: 10
Hi guys,
I am glad to join you in this forum, I am a new baby in the world of linux and python.

I want to install zope cms on my fedora core 6, and it contains an old python version (2.4.3) and it requires me to install python (2.4.4).

I downloaded the 2.4.4 version and unzipped it to my desktop, and in the terminal I typed ./configure and it did a lot of things. but i still have the 2.4.3 version. please can you help me to install the new version?

Usually the process is to run the following as root:

[code]
./configure
make
make install
[code]

If that does not work, I would suggest using one of the package manager utilities: yum works quite well in most cases.
