    Code:

        import wx
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/wx-2.8-gtk2-unicode/wx/__init__.py", line 45, in <module>
        from wx._core import *

    Within Knoppix V7.4.2 and after installation by
    Code:
    su
    aptitude update
    aptitude install -t testing playonlinux
    I can start PlayOnLinux without problems.

    Thanks it works.

    But 1 question? Do i need to only use Testing repositaries only for any new installation.

    No, you cannot predict which version within Knoppix will work.
