I think your first problem is that you installed python 2.7 on RHEL 6.

A lot of critical RHEL 6 stuff depends on python 2.6.6.  If you remove that
you're looking for trouble.

While you can, with some fiddling around, install python 2.7 along with python
2.6.6, you will find life becomes a lot more difficult afterward.  In short, the
best solution is "don't do that".
