Just to be clear: I know nothing about fink.
I just installed fink on Snow Leopard, from cvs. If I run fink list, only python25 and python26 are shown. Strangely enough I have ./fink/10.4/stable/main/finkinfo/languages/python24.info. as well as python25.info and python26.info in the same path. I don't understand how to make python24 available as well.
Any hints ?
