I installed blender from the repository. However, I can't seem to find the Blender module from python. I am not sure if it is a PYTHONPATH issue or some installation issue.
I am having some trouble getting an old version of blender to run. I installed blender 2.49b-linux-glibc236-py26-i386. This one needs python 2.6 (hence the 'py26' in the name of the blender file). So I installed Python 2.6 (alnd also 2.5, 2.5.6, 2.6.7, 2.7 & 3.2) using pythonbrew.
