I installed macpots to both my iMac and my black macbook(both with snow
leopard). And use it to install python27, py27-ipython.
It turns out the black macbook worked but my iMac didn't work. I still can
only bring up python 2.6 after successfully installed python27. Even I cd
to /opt/local/bin and call python, it still brought python 2.6 for me. What
I have to do?
