okay I just got a quick noobie question here goes: I’ve downloaded python ver 2.6.5 and installed it on my computer and when I start up blender it says that compiled with version 2.6.2 checking for installed python…got it! does it mean that blender is using a python version 2.6.2 or is it using the 2.6.5 and it’s just saying that it’s using version 2.6.2 and once again sorry for the noobie question I’m just curious :RocknRoll: a guy just gotta ask! :o
If I well understood, when you launch Blender you have these two lines, is that right ??
Compiled with Python version 2.6.2.
Checking for installed Python… got it!
So I think all is good I have the 2.6.2 version of Python and the same message than you !! When I began working with Python I had the 2.5.2 version and a warning (longer message than this one) told me that some scripts may not run…
So your python version would be great !! I think… but gurus of Blender can explain that better than me
thanks:D appreciate it
I guess, you,re working with Blender 2.49b and it requires Python 2.6 for scripting. It works with Python 2.6.x so your 2.6.5 should be quite OK
the simple answer is that blender is using 2.6.5 even though it says “Compiled with Python version 2.6.2.”
The first 2 digits are Version numbers - things (and compatibility) change version to version.
The 3rd digit is a bugfix release number - nothing changes, only fixes.
thanks I guess it was quite obvious lol:o thanks again guys
