python 2.5

is it true that python 2.5 does not work in blender? i had my computer formatted, but before that, i was able to make python 2.4 work… after fixing my pc, i downloaded python 2.5 but didn’t try it… now i need some scripting and i can’t get 2.5 to work… do i really have to download the py2.4 version? thanks in advance!

yea, blender uses python 2.4 so you gotta use it too

thank you so much!

the day python 2.5 came out Iv used blender with it, no problems :wink:

But you need to compile blender for 2.5, in linux its not hard. just set the and have py 2.5 installed with dev packages (or compile and install yourself)

Heres mine

export NAN_NO_PLUGIN=true
export WITH_FREETYPE2=true
export WITH_VERSE=true

# GE?
export NAN_NO_KETSJI=false
export NAN_NO_OPENAL=false

export WITH_OPENEXR = false

export CFLAGS=-march=athlon64 -O2 -pipe -m3dnow -msse -msse2 -mmmx -fomit-frame-pointer
export CCFLAGS=-march=athlon64 -O2 -pipe -m3dnow -msse -msse2 -mmmx -fomit-frame-pointer
export CXXFLAGS=-march=athlon64 -O2 -pipe -m3dnow -msse -msse2 -mmmx -fomit-frame-pointer

You can easily have python 2.4 and 2.5 installed at the same time if this is bothering you and you don’t want to compile blender with 2.5 support.,
