Which one is preferred? I am comfortable in Unix-esque environments and recently purchased a Macbook. I am currently using macports, as it is from Apple, but dont like how python 3.1 becomes /opt/local/bin/python31 (actually, i dont mind the path, that part is great, i dont like having to symlink it though).
A better example: I use python 2.6 for django development, but 2.5 ships with os x. That is fine until i run django server locally, 2.5 will be found first in my path.. (and prepending /opt/local/bin to path might break something depending on 2.5... id prefer to not touch anything installed explicitly by apple). is creating an alias really the best solution here?
What tips can you offer for using macports? is fink better?
