Hi...

I recently upgraded to blender 2.42. When I first ran the program the python console read the following
"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"

When I tried to import 9mm.3ds, the file did not import.

HELP
Matt

it's asking for Python 2.4... do you have it installed?

hi!

I have the same problem, but it still exists with 2.43RC2 and older versions (2.40 and after). I'm continously downloading older versions, but none of them works.
my system:
Slackware 10.2
python 2.4.3
kernel 2.6.17
nvidia GF6200 with nvidia closed-source driver

MOD: I've tried several versions, and I found that 2.34 is the last working version

You mean directory where I put Blender in?
where should it be?

BTW, With version blender-2.42a-linux-glibc232-py24-i386-static I don't get the "import site" error, the message is:

bash-2.05b$ ./blender
guessing './blender' == '/d1/blender-2.42a-linux-glibc232-py24-i386-static/./blender'
Compiled with Python version 2.4.
Checking for installed Python... got it!

I'm having the exact same problem. I don' think reverting back to an older version would help in my case, since I'm trying to import a .X file (a feature that apparently was added in a recent version).
