How to have two versions of Panda3D installed?

I installed panda3D 1.8 using apt-get in Ubuntu after following the instructions on that.

It looks like I need the newest dev version of panda3d to use coppertop’s version of … 5ed8ed8113

I would like to keep the 1.8 install, but would also like to test out the dev one. What would be the best way to do this without causing problems/conflicts?

They install to the same locations. It may be possible to get it to work, but switching back and forth will be troublesome - you’d probably have to install to two separate locations and set up scripts that will switch around your PYTHONPATH and PATH settings.

However, in Ubuntu, it’s quick enough to install and uninstall a package, so it’s probably not worth the trouble.
