I have a Debian system currently running with python 2.5.4. I got virtualenv properly installed, everything is working fine. Is there a possibility that I can use a virtualenv with a different version of Python?
I compiled Python 2.6.2 and would like to use it with some virtualenv. Is it enough to overwrite the binary file? Or do I have to change something in respect to the libraries?
Just use the -p flag when creating your virtualenv instance to specify the Python executable you want to use, e.g.:
virtualenv -p /usr/bin/python2.6 <path/to/new/virtualenv/>
