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,
just wanted to share a position that opened up here at WPI. The short
version is the position will oriented around security analysis, with a mix of
small to medium programming projects and system administration (all heavily
linux based, of course!). Anyone interested can view the full details, as
well as submit an application, on our HR jobs site:

Sorry for the late notice. I will not be available this evening, so
I'm canceling the WLUG meeting tonight.
Are people interested in having a WLUG BBQ this year? If so, we
should start planning for June or July or August.
