Panda conflicts?

I want to get the tutorials started, but there seems to be a problem with them. I create the first file that imports the library then just uses the run() command. Then, I try to load it up with ppython and python crashes.

I get the following output from the command prompt:

DirectStart: Starting the game.
Warning: DirectNotify: category ‘Interval’ already exists
Known pipe types:
(3 aux display modules not yet loaded.)

…and then it breaks.
I’m running windows XP and I previously installed python 2.4.

Does anyone know what the problem could be?

When you say it “breaks”, do you mean it pops up a dialog saying it crashed and then returns you to the command prompt?

Can you run pview successfully?

Have you tried running in DirectX mode?
