Python problems, new version?
Hi all. this is my first post here and I'm a newb to linux so be gentle. I have Mandrake 10.0 installed on my machine and am trying to install a Python based scientific computing program called SciPy. but when I run the installed file is looks for a /config/Makefile in the Python directory. But I don't have the directory or the file, btw I have the default Python 2.3.3 that came with Mandrake 10.0.
I read somewhere that there is a bug in Python 2.3 causing this problem. So my question is do I try to fix the bug or can should I install a newer version of Python. And can I have to versions installed at the same time?
I hope this question makes sense and thanks for any help I get.
