#83 closed defect (fixed)

scripts should provide access to python 2.6

Reported by: quentin Owned by: mitchb
Priority: minor Milestone: Fedora 11
Component: misc Keywords:


scripts should provide a python 2.6 that users can choose. Fedora isn't going to ship one until Fedora 11. Here are geofft's notes from RT #793441 about trying to use the python locker's version:

I've installed zlib.i386, but that seems not to have entirely helped, since the C _hashlib implementation doesn't want to play with Fedora (even if I install openssl.i386), and the pure Python hashlib implementation seems broken in the locker. I think the best solution for right now is to get a build of Python 2.6 that works with scripts (e.g., is 64-bit) in the locker; I'll look into this.

I've contacted python@ to ask them about a 64-bit build and will update the ticket here with their reply.
