I am new to Mac OS X. I need some help. I am having the following setup.
- Yosemite 10.10.5
- Python 2 Version 2.7.13
- Python 3 Version 3.6.2
I downloaded the python-3.6.2-macosx10.6.pkg and installed it. It is under the folder
When launching the IDLE application in the “Python 3.6” folder under applications folder the following error happens
Python 3.6.2 (v3.6.2:5fd33b5926, Jul 16 2017, 20:11:06) [GCC 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5666) (dot 3)] on darwin Type "copyright", "credits" or "license()" for more information. >>> WARNING: The version of Tcl/Tk (8.5.9) in use may be unstable. Visit http://www.python.org/download/mac/tcltk/ for current information.
I would like to get the IDLE application working with a Python 3.6.x interpreter.
In order to correct the problem we are asked to
- Install the latest 8.5 ActiveTcl version.
- Reinstall python 3
What is the recommended way to do the above?
- Do I uninstall the existing Python 3 interpreter? Then install the latest 8.5 ActiveTcl version. Then install Python 3 again.
- Do I install 8.5 ActiveTcl version. Use make altinstall to build a new version of Python
- Is there any other way to achieve it?
