      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Updating Python

Recommended Posts

I wonder how safe it is to update my python version to a more current version, and I also want to know how to do it without breaking my whole distro. Is ther a way I can get updates and backported packages for Python in a safe way?

You can have multiple versions of python on your system. One will be system-wide which you have in your distro already, and another you can have and run alongside it. I think I did do it once, but on a Debian system, so can't really tell you exactly how I did it now. But it's possible.
