Bittorrent can't find wxPython


I'm using BitTornado as a bittorrent client. The gui interface needed wxPython, so I downloaded and compiled it with the usual "./configure" "make" and "make install"

Everything was completed successfully, but the bittorrent gui still doesn't work. I get this error:
wxPython is either not installed or has not been installed properly.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./btdownloadgui.py", line 23, in ?
sys.exit(1)
NameError: name 'sys' is not defined


I had also done "ldconfig". I cant see anything wrong, what should I do?

PS: Using Slackware 9.1

I downloaded an older version: "BitTornado-0.2.0". I still get the error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./btdownloadgui.py", line 24, in ?
from BitTornado.ConfigReader import configReader
File "/home/akudewan/programs/BitTornado-CVS/BitTornado/ConfigReader.py", line 4, in ?
from wxPython.wx import *
ImportError: No module named wxPython.wx

I tried to recompile wxPython. 'configure' works fine, but I get this error when I 'make'

make: Nothing to be done for `all'

I deleted the Makefile, and tried again, but I get the same error every time. Whats wrong?

I finally figured out how to get it working. I had an rpm of wxPython, but no rpms worked in slack (Segmentation faut). So I downloded the latest version of rpm from slackware website. Then I converted the wxPython rpm to a tgz and installpkg-ed it.

Hello, I get the same error, I downloaded the source from http://www.wxpython.org I already have had python installed, and compiled everything, and it seems it worked fine.
But when I try to start bittornado I get the Error you mentioned in your first post.
Btw I use Slackware 10.0

Can someone help me?

Thanks
Bill
