Help! Installation problems!

You’re missing the OpenGL developer files. You’ll need GL and GLU. I think that on fedora, the package name is something along the lines of libmesagl and libmesaglu. I could be wrong about that. Of course, you could also search for gl.h and glu.h.

I warned you that you were only 5% of the way there! :slight_smile: But I think you’re closer to 70% now, so you’ve made a lot of progress.

As for a complete list, I’m afraid not. Yesterday, when you asked about libpng/libjpeg/libtiff, I tried to see if there was anything else you were missing. I couldn’t find anything - but apparently, I forgot that libGL and libGLU might not be standard under linux. I’m sure there are other things that I’m forgetting.

Youpee! Succesfully built! :smiley:
I have to go right now, but tomorrow I’ll test it and send the RPMS to you, Josh.
Thanks for all your help!

It installed fine, but when I run GreetingCard with ppython, I get an error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 1, in ?
    import direct.directbase.DirectStart
ImportError: No module named direct.directbase.DirectStart

The panda3d lib and bin directories are in my PATH and…

My hunch is that you might have missed an important piece of documentation. If you look in the “doc” directory under “INSTALL-MK”, it tells you how to install panda. There are some steps in there that you probably missed.

OK, I rebuilt Panda3d… same error.
Now, I added the /usr/local/panda3d, /usr/local/panda3d/lib, /usr/local/panda3d/bin (just to be sure) to the $PYTHONPATH env var.
But this is what I get now:

[root@localhost panda3d-1.3.2]# echo $PYTHONPATH

[root@localhost panda3d-1.3.2]# export PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:/usr/local/panda3d
[root@localhost panda3d-1.3.2]# export PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:/usr/local/panda3d/lib
[root@localhost panda3d-1.3.2]# export PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:/usr/local/panda3d/bin
[root@localhost panda3d-1.3.2]# ppython /usr/local/panda3d/samples/GreetingCard/
DirectStart: Starting the game.

ImportError: /usr/local/panda3d/lib/ undefined symbol: panda_version_1_3_0

OK, I’ve made some progress.
I thought the LD_LIBRARY_PATH is the same as PATH…
I checked the LD_LIBRARY_PATH and it was empty!
So, I added the panda3d and bin and lib folders to the PYTHONPATH, PATH, and the LD_LIBRARY_PATH, and now I got this error:

bash-3.1$ ppython /usr/local/panda3d/samples/GreetingCard/

Which means: there’s a problem with my NVIDIA X driver… (even the xorg log admits it…)
I’ll see if there are any updates on the NVIDIA website… :slight_smile:

:smiley: Youpee! it WORKS!!
Downloaded a newer kernel version, newest NVIDIA drivers… and panda3d works now :slight_smile: Thanks for all you help!
And Josh, if you still want to build a Mandriva rpm, click HERE to download the necessary RPMS.
If I forgot to include one, you can download them HERE, just click Advanced search, check Mandriva, check New Look For FTP Search etc…

Josh, still up to build a Mandriva rpm?
