running cedega 5.1

I am new to linux and would really like to use it. I got Cedega 5.1, but when I try to run the program by typing in "cedega" in the Konsole I get the following message:

[quickeyez@localhost ~]$ cedega
Could not find platform independent libraries <prefix>
Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>]
'import site' failed; use -v for traceback
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/transgaming_cedega/", line 11, in ?
import os, popen2
ImportError: No module named os"

Can anyone help my with a very basic step-by-step guide to getting the program running.

Just out of curiosity what linux distro do you have?

It should be simple, just make sure you have the Latest update, as you cannot play games in Cedega without a Update run through cedega or installed from locally.
