I believe I am running CentOS 5.5 (64-bit) on CA AppLogic 3.0.
uname -a says
Linux LINUX64 2.6.18-194.32.1.el5xen #1 SMP Wed Jan 5 18:44:24 EST 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I have upgrade with
yum upgrade, but my Python is still in version 2.4.3.

I think I read once somewhere that
yum depends on
python so I shouldn't remove that. So should I download python version 2.7.x as a source and compile it? Or is there a way to upgrade Python with
I am planning using the latest version 2.x of Python for Django.
