Python Environment

Post by Elesurian » Fri Sep 23, 2016 21:54


I recently noticed (due to something else entirely) that my Python environment, using eselect, is set to 2.7 and not 3.4. What I was wondering was should it be set to 3.4? Everything seems to work ok, except for the occasional KDE glitch when the borders disappear after a minor KDE crash.That used to be an issue but now it seems to restart itself correctly so is now less of a problem. Switching Python versions probably wouldn't fix this but I was curious as to if there where any significant benefits or performance gains to be obtained.

Any advice would be appreciated on this.

It is set to 2.7 because Portage (the Gentoo Linux package manager) uses Python 2.7, and Sabayon Linux is based on Gentoo Linux and Entropy provides you with pre-canned packages that were built using Portage. So, to answer your question, no it shouldn't and your installation is OK.
