Python and MySQL 4.1

Hello. I just upgrade to MySQL 4.1 from 4.0, and I'm having trouble
retrieving text from the DB in the proper format using the MySQLdb
module in Python. All text fields that are retrieved are in this

array('c', 'Whatever is in the field')

The only data that's not displayed in that format are enum values, and
when I was still in v4.0 only 'Whatever is in the field' is

Are there any quick fixes? I've completed my Python application
already, so I don't really want to go in and mess with the source code
if I don't need to.

Thanks in advance.

Could you post an example that demonstrates the problem? It would
be helpful to see the CREATE TABLE and INSERT statements that show
what the data looks like, the Python code that shows how you're
retrieving the data, the program's output with MySQL 4.0, and the
program's output with MySQL 4.1.

Just a shot in the dark - did you rebuild the MySLQdb module using the
new MySQL libraries?

I'm getting my feet wet with making Python talk to MySQL via ODBC. I started on Windows, and it went smoothly enough due to the ODBC stuff that apparently is native to Python at least on windows (I've been following ch. 13 of Mark Hammond's py on win32 book). But now I'm trying to do equivalent stuff on linux (Fedora Core 3) with python 2.3.5 and mysql. I'd like to stick with packages that are native to python, rather than relying on...

Hello, I am using the Python DB API for access to MySQL. But it is not platform-independent - I need a module not included in Python by default - python-mysql, and it uses a compiled binary _mysql.so. So it is not platform-independent because for each web-server on different platform, I would have to download it and extra compile it specifically for that platform. Do you know of any Python solution for MySQL access that is 100%...

The major complaint I have about Python is that the packages which connect it to other software components all seem to have serious problems. As long as you don't need to talk to anything outside the Python world, you're fine. But once you do, things go downhill. MySQLdb has version and platform compatibility problems. So does M2Crypto. The built-in SSL support is weak. Even basic sockets don't quite work right; the socket module...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
