I have 3.1, 2.7 & 2.6 installed. Is it now safe to select python 2.7 as my main version and unmerge 2.6?

Yes, first change the active version, run python-updater, and finally unmerge the old version.

"sure" and "safe" are words that should not be used in the same breath with "gentoo". ;)

I've updated python several days ago. After starting
Code:
python-updater
I get

Code:
 * Starting Python Updater...
 * Main active version of Python:  2.7
 * Active version of Python 2:     2.7
 * Active version of Python 3:     3.1
 *   Adding to list: app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-medialibs:0
 *   Adding to list: dev-libs/boost:1.42


Great! :)

Unfortunetly over and over again. :(

Exactly that, what it's supposed to do.

Code:
brain@ulising ~ $ eselect python list
Available Python interpreters:
  [1]   python2.7 *
  [2]   python3.1


Da muss ein Hund drin sein, as we say in German. ;)

Edit:
btw: what does this thread do in "Unsupported Software"?

But, if you want to delete python-2.x, shouldn't you select python-3.1 as main active version, so that the python updater rebuilds your packages against it? And probably this is in Unsupported Software because removing 2.x is not officially supported (yet).

I'm afraid, we're talking at cross-purposes.

AFAIK choosing 3.1 as the main active version would be no good idea. ;)

No problem.

Is there something like
Code:
python-cleaner all

or
Code:
pythonfixer


? ;)

Of course there isn't...

Looks like I'm not the only one who's affected:

I feel much better now. :D

Everything went well for me, except that I had to remove the python use flag for dev-lang/yasm.

https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=348587

and I had to create a symlink for dev-python/sexy-python

Code:
ln -s /usr/include/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/gdk-pixbuf /usr/include/gdk-pixbuf
