Can someone help me to install Python 2.7 on Oracle Linux 6.3?
Looking for installation steps for Oracle Linux 6.3 fresh image.
If you want basic installation help, the general sequence of commands is:
I'd be wary of replacing the system python 2.6 with a newer version, so you'll likely want to use the --prefix=/path/to/somewhere option to 'configure'.
If you want to emulate the system python configuration, look at a source RPM for python 2.6 from https://oss.oracle.com/ol6/SRPMS-updates/ and see what it does. You can expand the *.srpm file with
rpm2cpio *.rpm | cpio -idmv
rpm2cpio *.rpm | xz -d | cpio -idmv
