How do I force salt-ssh to use /usr/bin/python3.8 without changing the /usr/bin/python3 symlink?

  • SaltStack

    Software to automate the management and configuration of any infrastructure or application at scale. Get access to the Salt software package repository here:

  • Freepbx

    This module provides a facility to install bug fixes to the framework code that is not otherwise housed in a module (by FreePBX)

    Yeah, I use this approach with the FreePBX Distro. It depends on a weird yum package python36u-3.6.7-1.ius.centos7.x86_64 which isn't compatible with the regular Python3.6 package of which Salt depends on. So using the Saltproject yum repo fails every time.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
