I try to switch to Homebrew (after using fink and macport) on Mac OS X 10.6.2. I have installed python 2.7 with
brew install python
The problem is that, contrary to Macport, it seems that there is no python_select utility, and my default mac python is always default
/usr/bin/python is not a symlink
How can I do to make python brew flavour to be my default python ?
As you are using Homebrew the following command gives a better picture:
==> /usr/bin occurs before /usr/local/bin This means that system-provided programs will be used instead of those provided by Homebrew. This is an issue if you eg. brew installed Python.
Consider editing your .bash_profile to put: /usr/local/bin ahead of /usr/bin in your $PATH.
