makepanda direct module

I’m trying to compile panda3d 1.8.1 using makepanda on Linux Mint Debian.
The makepanda.py went good until 99% was reached then i got the following error:

[ 99%] Generating 'pandac' tree 
Could not locate the 'direct' python modules
Storing dependency cache.
Elapsed Time: 1 sec
The following command returned a non-zero value: /usr/bin/python2.7 direct/src/ffi/jGenPyCode.py -r libpandaexpress libpanda libpandaegg
Build terminated.

I started the build with the following line:

makepanda/makepanda.py --installer --nothing --use-python --use-zlib --use-png --use-openal --use-gtk2 --use-pandatool

Does anyone have an idea what i’m doing wrong?
I’m building with python2.7.3rc2

You’re not building with the “direct” tree enabled. This is a critical part that you’ll want to build with if you’re going to use Panda3D with Python. You should add --use-direct .

Ah thanks. I didn’t found the list with all --use-* options. Now i found it with makepanda.py --help.
Now i have another problem but since it’s related to something different i will post it in another thread.
