no kinect capture from python

I've managed to compile opencv 2.4.3 with the "WITH_OPENNI" switched on. Capturing depth data works fine, however, I cannot open capturing from the kinect device. When trying to do so, opencv fails with the following message:

"Warning, camera failed to properly initialize! Cleaned up camera. CvCapture_OpenNI::CvCapture_OpenNI : Failed device with index 1"

Noticeable is that in the wrapper the symbols "CV_CAP_OPENNI*" are missing. Not sure whether this is intentional?

I'm curious if you have any perspective how I might tackle this issue? Any hints are much appreciated.
