This morning I decided to make the big switch to Python 3.0 on my Gentoo Laptop. I have been avoiding it since there are some changes to 3.0 that are not backwards compatible with scripts and tool written in 2.6. The emerge of Python 3.0 went fine but I had some issues with beauitfulsoup which is a python dependency in many tools including fast-track which is a great tool written by my friend Dave Kennedy (ReL1k). As always if you have any questions regarding this or any other issues please make a post in the Question section of the site.
I use Gentoo Linux and I love it however the Portage package manager can be confusing sometimes with all the USE flags and other variables which can be set. Generally the error messages are fairly accurate with instructions however today I ran across a particularly stubborn package that just would not build.
