Hi Vladimir,

You could install 'python26' from EPEL[1], presumably this does not
break /usr/bin/python since it installs the new version as
/usr/bin/python2.6.  Then as the user which runs Galaxy, do something
like this:

$ mkdir $HOME/bin
$ ln -s /usr/bin/python2.6 $HOME/bin/python
$ export PATH=$HOME/bin:$PATH
$ echo 'export PATH=$HOME/bin:$PATH' >> $HOME/.bash_profile

--nate
