installing MySQLdb module


R

rgarcia

I've installed the developer tools package, but when running "python
setup.py build" I get the following error:

python setup.py build

I googled around and people say you need the "-dev" package of mysql
in order to have the C headers...where can you download this for mac
os?

Thanks,
Rafael

PS I am running XAMPP (http://www.keitr.com/tutorials/xampp) if that
changes anything

Hi Rafael,

Ok, here my solution to the problem (Mac OS X 10.4, Xampp and MySQLdb)

1) install Xcode from apple (for gcc, need free account for that,
http://developer.apple.com/)
2) get Mac binary tar from MySQL (http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/
5.0.html#macosx)
3) edit site.cfg (mysql_config = /Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/bin/
mysql_config)
4) copy include dir from MySQL package to /Applications/xampp/
xamppfiles/include/mysql

I bet downloading the same version from MySQL as installed from Xampp
could help.
And yes, you only need the include folder from the MySQL binary
package, do not install it.

Peace,
Zaphot
