I have a Mac which uses MacPorts to have multiple versions of Python installed and use the
python_select application to switch between them.
Currently, this Mac has OS 10.6.6, which comes with Python 2.6.1 installed as
/usr/bin/python. Using MacPorts, I've installed the
python_select ports and now have this issue: python_select seems to not be switching the default python properly:
$ which python /usr/bin/python $ python -V Python 2.6.1 $ /usr/bin/python -V Python 2.6.1 $ sudo python_select python27 Selecting version "python27" for python $ which python /opt/local/bin/python $ ls -l /opt/local/bin/python lrwxr-xr-x 1 root admin 24B Mar 18 10:24 /opt/local/bin/python -> /opt/local/bin/python2.7 $ python -V Python 2.6.1 # <-- Wrong!!! $ /opt/local/bin/python -V Python 2.7.1 # <-- Why are you not default?
So, after running
which python seems to think that the
/opt/local/bin version is going to be used, but in reality, it seems that the
/usr/bin one is taking precedent unless I specifically call the
Is there something I'm doing wrong?
