I am trying to install latest mercurial on fedora by doing sudo yum install mercurial .
But doing so I am getting mercurial 1.1 that is not latest release .Current mercurial release is 1.6+ .
Any help is highly appreciated
My guess is that you're running a somewhat older version of fedora, since
as well as
on Fedora 13 give me 1.6.4 .
So you can either upgrade your fedora to a newer version, or install mercurial through pypi:
since pip also allows to uninstall. easy_install is part of python-setuptools
