Update: Since October 2 2013, there is a new way of setting default 1 versions;
20131003: AFFECTS: users of lang/python* and ports AUTHOR: mva@FreeBSD.org The default versions of lang/python* have been changed to support the new DEFAULT_VERSIONS variable. PYTHON_DEFAULT_VERSION, PYTHON2_DEFAULT_VERSION and PYTHON3_DEFAULT_VERSION are deprecated. If you have set them in your make.conf, you should change them something like DEFAULT_VERSIONS=python=2.7 python2=2.7 python3=3.3
You could remove
/usr/local/bin/python and create a symlink to 1 Python 2.6:
rm /usr/local/bin/python ln -s /usr/local/bin/python2.6 /usr/local/bin/python
The correct answer as of FreeBSD 12.0 is 3 as follows.
- Create a file in
/tmp/makePatchPython3.6.patchwith the following contents:
1,2d0 < DEFAULT_VERSIONS += python=3.6 <
This will add a line to the start 2 of your
/etc/make.conf that will change the default python 1 in use on the system.
[/usr/ports/lang/python]$ sudo make deinstall [/usr/ports/lang/python]$ sudo patch /etc/make.conf /tmp/makePatchPython3.6.patch [/usr/ports/lang/python]$ sudo make reinstall [/usr/ports/lang/python]$ python --version Python 3.6.8 # This will be different depending on which python version you install.
