Non-Panda question: how to find libpanda2x.so on linux?

Not really a Panda question, but: does anyone know how to get hte libpanda2x.so file (eg libpanda22.so) on linux?

I tried building a couple of versions of Python but couldnt see this anywhere. The $PREFIX/lib/python2.x directory just seems to contain .py files?

Theres a libpython2x.a file in the Python distribution, but this is a statically linked library, and also it doesnt seem to work awfully well: errors about fork not found etc.

What am I missing?

I did a “find” looking for libpython* and it didn’t find anything at all.

Then, I looked here:

panda3d.etc.cmu.edu% ldd /usr/bin/python
libpthread.so.0 => /lib/tls/libpthread.so.0 (0x00af8000)
libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x00933000)
libutil.so.1 => /lib/libutil.so.1 (0x00aa5000)
libm.so.6 => /lib/tls/libm.so.6 (0x0090e000)
libc.so.6 => /lib/tls/libc.so.6 (0x007f0000)
/lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x007d7000)

It appears that there is no libpython22, at least not in the way that python was compiled under fedora core 2.
