The continuing happily msg comes from Blender not Alexander.  It can be
happy even if you are not.

The key here is the "Compiled with Python version 2.4.1."
You need to have the same version of python that blender was
compiled with.  Otherwise, some scripts may not run.  This 
relation is nothing new.

Either install python 2.4 or get blender built with python 2.3 and
continue happily!
