Hi,

many thanks for your request. Basically Python2 and Python3 are 2 different / independent applications and can be installed next to each other. If you select Python from dietpi-software catalogue, you will get Python 2.7.16 as well as Python 3.7.3 installed.

Python 2

Code: Select all

root@DietPiVM1:~# which python
/usr/bin/python
root@DietPiVM1:~# python --version
Python 2.7.16
Python 3

Code: Select all

root@DietPiVM1:~# which python3
/usr/bin/python3
root@DietPiVM1:~# python3 --version
Python 3.7.3
root@DietPiVM1:~#
Installation will be done via apt packages and there Python 3.7.3 is the latest available on Debian Buster.

https://packages.debian.org/en/buster/python3

Not sure how your application is configured but usually you should be able to specify on the execution command which Python version to use.

Maybe I was not clear enough: Python 3.8 is not available in the standard Debian 10 repositories.

However you can have a look to following guide to compile it yourselves: https://linuxize.com/post/how-to-instal ... debian-10/

btw: Requirements on https://github.com/mylar3/mylar3
Requirements
  • At least Python version 3.7.2
