Right. I tried that before writing, but I forgot to specify as much. No, that didn't work either. Here are a couple of peculiarities:

* I took over this box from someone who didn't know the difference between FreeBSD and Linux. So, he built the original Python in a different dir.
* The original python powers several Zope instances.

Having said as much, years ago I had two versions of python running, one for Zope and one for everything else. So this should work. Anyway, it doesn't!

More ideas?
TIA.
Ted

I've tried installing from FreeBSD ports and the oldfashioned way from source code, with the "configure && make && make install" dance, and still when I call up my python interpreter it tells me I'm in 2.3.5! Why? I didn't do "altinstall"! What gives?
