ImportError: No module named _md5

P: n/a
Hello,

Does anyone know how to fix this error when trying to build MySQL-
python-1.2.2:

python setup.py build
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "setup.py", line 5, in <module>
import ez_setup; ez_setup.use_setuptools()
File "/Users/jasonnerida/Downloads/MySQL-python-1.2.2/ez_setup.py",
line 83, in use_setuptools
egg = download_setuptools(version, download_base, to_dir,
download_delay)
File "/Users/jasonnerida/Downloads/MySQL-python-1.2.2/ez_setup.py",
line 111, in download_setuptools
import urllib2, shutil
File "/opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/
lib/python2.5/urllib2.py", line 91, in <module>
import hashlib
File "/opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/
lib/python2.5/hashlib.py", line 133, in <module>
md5 = __get_builtin_constructor('md5')
File "/opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/
lib/python2.5/hashlib.py", line 60, in __get_builtin_constructor
import _md5
ImportError: No module named _md5

I then tried installing py25-hashlib via macports, which never
completes:

sudo port install py25-hashlib
Password:
Waiting for lock on /opt/local/var/macports/build/
_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org _release_ports_python_py25-
hashlib/work/.macports.py25-hashlib.state

Do I need to completely reinstall python? I'm using 2.5.2 which
shipped with Leopard.

Thanks for any help,

Jason

Delete the directory

/opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org _release_ports_python_py25-hashlib/

and try building py25-hashlib again.
