I'am using CentOS v6.4 on my VPS and hence 'yum' install manager and i just tried:
root@nikos [~]# which python
root@nikos [~]# which python3
root@nikos [~]# which python3.3
Why so many pythons in my system.
Now in the case of my Python3 installation, it looks like i have two parallel installations of Python3, but i don't. One is almost certainly a symlink to the other and not an actual installation.
I'm thinking of:
yum remove python
yum remove python3
yum remove python3.3
yum install python3.3.2 from scratch.
I'm sceptic about uninstalling python 2.x though. Seems to me as a bad idea because most of the core system utilities are written in Python 2.6+. Yum, for example, is a collection of Python 2.6 programs. If i actually do "yum remove python" i will see most of my core system get listed in the uninstall dependency list -- which is a Bad Thing.
But then again i dont like the idea of having too many Python into my system.
