Are you using official blender?

WARNING (linux only): For the plugin to work, you need to compile
Blender and YafRay with the same compiler or at least same ABI. Packages
are compiled with g++ 3.3, but official Blender uses 2.95, it won't
work. You have to compile Blender yourself or try to compile YafRay with
2.95. We will try to put gcc 3.3 Blender binaries for download.
