Yes, tried that:

$ echo $PYTHONPATH
/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/

and no improvement. Should there be a file or directory named GLUT* in
/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/OpenGL/ ? All I can see are GL, GLU
and GLX directories.

 I'm unsure why

jc at localhost~/etc/python>$ python2
Python 2.4.2 (#1, Feb 12 2006, 03:59:46)
[GCC 4.1.0 20060210 (Red Hat 4.1.0-0.24)] on linux2

The OpenGL stuff was from an RPM that I sound on the web.

Many thanks,

Jon C.
