  • Python 2.7.3
    There are three "Software Collections" installed on the Eos Linux lab machines running Realm Linux 6. The collections have also been installed on the 24x7 VCL Linux lab machines and the cluster of machines at the hostname

    The software collections installed are: devtoolset-2, python27, and python33.

    devtoolset-2 contains a newer gcc compiler (4.8.1), a newer Eclipse IDE (4.3.0), and a newer binutils (2.23) among other small developer improvements that are too numerous to list here.

    python27 contains the python version 2.7 language.

    python33 contains the python version 3.3 language.

    As an example, to use devtoolset-2 and python27 with bash, the following command could be run in a terminal:

    scl enable devtoolset-2 python27 bash

    See the man page for scl for more information about how software collections work on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
