Issue with MySQLdb wrapper

Hi guys I have a big problem with this wrapper im using Ubuntu 7.04
and I want to install python-MySQLdb, I used synaptics and it is
installed, but when I try to do
>>import MySQLdb
and I get this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
File "MySQLdb/__init__.py", line 19, in <module>
import _mysql
ImportError: No module named _mysql

so I tried to download it from the site and install it from the .tar
file but I failed because when I run

#~/Desktop/MySQL-python-1.2.2$ python setup.py install

I get this output:

This script requires setuptools version 0.6c5 to run (even to display
help). I will attempt to download it for you (from
http://cheeseshop.python.org/package...s/setuptools/), but
you may need to enable firewall access for this script first.
I will start the download in 15 seconds.

(Note: if this machine does not have network access, please obtain the


and place it in this directory before rerunning this script.)

Looks like the install of MySQLdb is botched up. You might try and use
the Ubuntu package management tool to check your installation for
correctness. If that tells you everything is ok and it's still busted,
you might try to uninstall, then reinstall MySQLdb.

If that still doesn't work, you probably should ask about this on one
of the Ubuntu forums.

In general, my guess is that, unless you have a good reason not to,
you should probably not install fairly standard python packages by-
hand like that on Ubuntu. There should be an Ubuntu package for what
you need, and if there is, you should stick with that. If it fails,
the Ubuntu folks will want to know about it.

Hi all, I have a mac mini running maocosx 10.5 leopard I want to deploy a django project on. My backend is MySQL, and I have it running as a 64- bit app. Of course, apache2 is also running as 64-bit. MySQLdb installs with the usual warnings after applying the various patches I found here and there. These patches consist of altering _mysql.c and site.cfg.
