The subversion server at my office is on a CentOS 6 server, and a software
developer wrote a hook in python for it. The hook requires python 2.7, but
CentOS 6 only has 2.6.6 (python-2.6.6-36.el6 to be exact).
I grabbed python-2.7.2-5.2.fc16.src.rpm from Fedora 16 and am trying to
roll my own via instructions I found on the CentOS wiki. All is good
except that it requires db4.8, and that's not out for RHEL6 either.
>From where I stand, it looks like my options are:
1) wait this out until either Python or a dependency are pushed up, but
when is that?
2) rebuild this package with the deps, but I'm not quite sure how to roll a
3) roll my own package from scratch
4) install python 2.7 in an alternate location and point to it for this
Since this is a production server, I'd rather no do any hacks on this.
Does anybody know how the release schedule works, or have any other advice?
Thanks in advance,
