Bounty: 50

We have different python version installed and specifically using python3.7 so I have edited my .bashrc file. We are using Centos7 with Linux server.

# .bashrc

# Source global definitions
if [ -f /etc/bashrc ]; then
        . /etc/bashrc

# Uncomment the following line if you don't like systemctl's auto-paging feature:
# User specific aliases and functions
alias python=python3.7
alias pip=pip3.7

[xyz@innolx20122 ~]$ python
python             python2.7          python3.6          python3.7          python3.7m-config
python2            python3            python3.6m         python3.7m

[xyz@innolx20122 ~]$ which sqlite3

Its working with python2.7 and python3.6 version

We installed python following instruction in the below link
Python3.7 installation link

Hence my python3.7 version is installed at root level

[root@innolx20122 ~]# ls
anaconda-ks.cfg  Python-3.7.0  Python-3.7.0.tgz
[root@innolx20122 ~]# cd Python-3.7.0

I saw one link on stack overflow suggesting some workaround.
fix Sqlite3 issue

Kindly suggest if it’s ok to run below commands from same root directory itself

yum install sqlite-devel

make && make altinstall
