Hi! I compiled, built, and installed Panda3d using a brewed python, but when i try to import Panda3d modules with the brewed interpreter, i get a segmentation fault error. I can use the ppython executable to run samples and generally code, but is it possibile to use the brewed version to run Panda3d code? Before the compilation i edited makepanda.py changing:
#SmartPkgEnable("PYTHON", "", SDK["PYTHONVERSION"], (SDK["PYTHONVERSION"], SDK["PYTHONVERSION"] + "/Python.h"), tool = SDK["PYTHONVERSION"] + "-config")
but without results.
That looks like it should generally work, except you also have to edit makepandacore.py and find SdkLocatePython. Make sure that it assigns SDK[“PYTHON”] to your include directory, SDK[“PYTHONEXEC”] to the Python executable, and SDK[“PYTHONVERSION”] to “python2.7”.
Why we have two mechanisms for detecting Python, I’m not sure.
After changing this you will have to make sure you do a full rebuild by removing the “built” directory.
I’ll think about adding command line switches to more easily make this happen.
Actually, now that I think of it, it used to be that makepanda on OS X would automatically compile for whatever version of Python you ran it with. I disabled that recently because we use “-framework Python” to link it which caused it to pick up the system Python framework anyway.
Maybe we should just go back to that approach and use “-lpython2.7” across the board.
