MySQLdb windows binaries for Python 2.5??

HI All,
Does such a beast exist? Have been looking but haven't seen any. Any
insight would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I'm also looking for a MySQLdb binary for windows. This is holding me
from upgrading from Python 2.4 to Python 2.5 !

Or does anybody know of alternatives ? I have to connect directly to
an MySQL database.

I'm just trying to build from source and am having problems getting the
right parameters for the setup.py. It seems mysql-5.0.27 for win32
doesn't have mysql-config.exe so the setup fails rather miserably.

If you search the Help Forum of the MySQLdb project on SourceForge, you
will find a couple of people who have successfully built MySQLdb on
Windows for 2.5, and are willing to share their installers.
That's how I got my binaries.

Yes, see

http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.p...forum_id=70461

for an untested version created by a World of Warcraft guild:

http://www.guildmanus.com/uploaded/M...in32-py2.5.exe

This, apparently, is the extent of current Python support for MySQL.
Want to install that executable, as root, on your production machines?

This is embarassing for the Python community. Perl and PHP come
with MySQL support built in. Python is out to lunch on this.

I couldn't disagree more. That fact that no Database drivers are built-in
makes Python stronger - allowing Python to access any Data Engine that
supports DBI 2.0. Of course I'm not including pickle in my assessment.

And providing 'built-in' drivers for massively popular databases would
prevent that from being true how ?

What's happened is that Python fell through the cracks here. MySQL
themselves support Java, Microsoft ".NET", PHP, and a C interface.
The Perl interface to MySQL is part of the supported Perl distribution.
But for for Python, everybody is running on glue code from one
guy on Sourceforge, and he's having problems keeping up.

Oops.

As a workaround, I went back to Python 2.4 on the Windows machine.
Works fine. Looks like 2.5 isn't ready for prime time yet, until
MySQLdb is fixed.
