easy_install with MySQL-python

S

Ske

Let me apologise in advance if I’m missing something obvious, I’m still very
new to this!

I’m attempting to install MySQL-python in Python2.6 on Windows. On running
"easy_install MySQL-python" I get a "The system cannot find the file
specified" message. Full output is below:

Searching for MySQL-python
Reading http://pypi.python.org/simple/MySQL-python/
Reading http://sourceforge.net/projects/mysql-python
Reading http://sourceforge.net/projects/mysql-python/
Best match: MySQL-python 1.2.3b1
Downloading

-1.2.3b1.tar.gz
Processing MySQL-python-1.2.3b1.tar.gz
Running MySQL-python-1.2.3b1\setup.py -q bdist_egg --dist-dir
c:\docume~1\michae
~1\locals~1\temp\easy_install-bmrwgu\MySQL-python-1.2.3b1\egg-dist-tmp-_uhixz
error: The system cannot find the file specified

I've really no idea how to solve this, and searches turn up nothing of help..
Any ideas?
Thanks!

It may be that the egg is incompatible with Python 2.6. Looking at the
last location that easy_install downloads from, I found that there is
no 2.6 egg there (see http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=22307&package_id=15775).

I've had some goofy issues with compressed files being weird. Try
downloading the source yourself, unzipping it, then navigating to that
folder via the command line and running something like this:

python setup.py install

If your python isn't on the path, you'll have to do something like
this instead:

c:\python26\python.exe setup.py install

Hopefully that will get you going.

Thanks for your help, Mike.

On running "python setup.py install" in the extracted directory, I get this:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "setup.py", line 16, in <module>
metadata, options = get_config()
File "C:\Python26\Lib\site-packages\MySQL-python-1.2.2\setup_windows.py",
line
7, in get_config
serverKey = _winreg.OpenKey(_winreg.HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,
options['registry_ke
y'])
WindowsError: [Error 2] The system cannot find the file specified
