Python 2.4 on Ubuntu 10.04

written on 2010-08-16

The installation of python2.4 on Ubuntu 10.04 had me pulling the hair from my head. I needed to deploy a Plone project using Fabric and buildout-source-release and python2.4, but the latter has been dropped for Ubuntu 10.04. Through dirty hacks it was possible to release, but now I've got the propper solution.
