Compiled with Python version 2.4.
‘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.
but in linux console “python” cmd
Python 2.4.2 (#2, Mar 4 2006, 02:19:37)

Type “help”, “copyright”, “credits” or “license” for more information.
The Blender is download from site …

Go to, go to downloads on the navigation bar on the side, scroll down untill you see a link that says python 2.4.4, and download it. but you don’t need python for most things, even if you have it the black screen that said all that stuff before will say Looking for installed python…Got it!

afaik this is wrong. it appears that you didn’t even notice that he is on linux, not windows, and has python already.

you already have python, and it is the right version, and it is obviously in your path. check #blenderchat on for help.

maybe try to install via a repo for Mandrake? Worked in Fedora. Installed Blender as an extra package. no problems anymore.
