lotuspsychjegood morning to all02:34
gimzmoeI've got a noob question, I've got 5 laptops I'm trying to cluster for a project.  I've installed python3 on all of them but some have 3.8.2 and others have 3.8.6 as installed from the repo when I added deadsnakes ppa... can someone explain why and maybe a clue to how to fix it?04:08
guivercgimzmoe, are all running the same release?  different releases can have different versions of packages even with PPAs05:24
gimzmoethat's what started this mess, but I upgraded.  I think... I've sorted something out, I'm stripping the python3 from each of the machines and starting over.  it's not fast or pretty but it's progress05:25
