Blender 2.48a and my opensuse 11 64 bit

hi all, i have a problem. i use opensuse 11 64bit and open blender 2.48a, and i got this warning message on shell.

Compiled with Python version 2.5.2.
Could not find platform independent libraries <prefix>
Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>]
‘import site’ failed; use -v for traceback
Checking for installed Python… No installed Python found.
Only built-in modules are available. Some scripts may not run.
Continuing happily.

another problem is that i still have difficulties playing sound in blender inside opensuse 11. whenever i try to play a sound in sound block button, i couldn’t hear anything. plus when i play a movie with vlc or any video player, suddenly it’s muted. everything is back to normal after i close blender.

can someone plese help me. what should i do ?? thanks in advance

looks like you have no python in your system.
install it.
or the python version not match the compiled version,
try to install a python v2.5x

i have no problem with 2.48, and i already install python
