I would like to install Python 2.6 and mod_python on CentOS 5 (x64).
The system is delivered with old python 2.4 and I want the new one with minimal maintenance effort (compiling and having a different installation seams to be suboptimal solution).
Is there a solution for this, other than starting to recompile lots of packages? If not should I switch to Ubuntu?
Please remember that I'm talking about x64 - I found a repository on net with updated packages but it is not x64.
