Please update the PKGBUILD or orphan the package if you can't.

I've got an updated ebuild for python 2.6.6, along with fixes to prevent conflicts. To launch you need to run python26 instead of python, and the like for idle and the other commands. I won't promise it's perfect, but it works for me.

The updated PKGBUILD for python 2.6.6:

And updated patches:

would it be possible to get this as a non conflicting install of python 2.6 so it can be installed beside 3.1 and 2.7
I recieved the below errors that would I believe need attention to get it to be another istance of python that could be made default for a single session.

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
python26: /usr/bin/2to3 exists in filesystem
python26: /usr/bin/idle exists in filesystem
python26: /usr/bin/pydoc exists in filesystem
python26: /usr/bin/python exists in filesystem
python26: /usr/bin/python-config exists in filesystem

I un flaged this as out of date as with the conversion to 3.1 and 2.7 there are likely to be applications which may still need 2.6 untill most distros are on 2.7 or 3.1

You may need to force install this since the python3.1/python2.7 upgrade does not cleanup the python2.6 stuff
