Thanks for the hint Xavier.
I made the default interpreter ipython.

# rm /usr/bin/python
# ln -s /usr/bin/python2.4-ipython /usr/bin/python

ipython is better i think ..

and another question;
When i type "sudo aptitude install python-jabber" for example, it
brings the python2.3-jabber package. But i want it to bring me the 2.4
package. Of course i am able to use "sudo aptitude install
python2.4-jabber" but i want to know if this situation is normal? Can i
tell aptitude, bring me python2.4-xx when i type python-xx?

And running two version of python should be a problem?
