    Question I have a problem installing activestate python instead of the default. How can I fix

    I am getting this error when trying to run the ./install.sh for ActivePython. How can I correct this?
    This is what I am running right now:
    Linux ubuntu-desktop3.0.0-31-generic #48-Ubuntu SMP Mon Feb 4 13:25:59 UTC 2013 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux


    cd /tmp
    wget http
    ://downloads.activestate.com/ActivePython/releases/2.7.2.5/ActivePython-2.7.2.5-linux-x86_64.tar.gz
    tar xzf
    ActivePython-2.7.2.5-linux-x86.tar.gz
    cd
    ActivePython-2.7.2.5-linux-x86
    ./install.sh

    error

    why are you trying to install activestate python, python is already installed on your system and most everything you need is in the repos.

    aside from installing python exactly what are you trying to do?
