I just built VTK form CVS (yesterday) on linux fedora core 3  
(2.6.11-1.35_FC3 kernel)
with python 2.4 wrapping

no compile errors,
but when importing the vtk python module i get the undefined symbol   
error below,

any clues anyone?

I am of course trying to do volume rendering....

Is it something to do with the nVidia linux video drivers?

BTW, my OSX VTK CVS  build from a couple of days ago is working (but  
not texture mapping.... but might just be our code not VTK that isnt
