|Title||The python 1.5.2 RPMs are not sufficient to build MySQLdb|
|Assigned user||Nick Barnes|
|Description||The Python 1.5.2 RPMs are no good for building the MySQLdb interface. In the AG we offer the Python 1.5.2 RPM. This is insufficient on its own to build the interface (because it doesn't have the header files).|
There is a python-devel RPM which does include header files, but for some reason the MySQLdb 0.2.2 and 0.3.0 interfaces don't compile out of the box with it.
Building python 1.5.2 from the tarball distribution works OK, as long as you include the optional syslog module (by uncommenting the syslog line from Modules/Setup before running make).
|Analysis||Need to clarify the requirement in the AG.|
This is a duplicate of job000186, which has better information.
|Evidence||Error messages when building MySQLdb 0.2.2 in October and MySQL 0.3.0 today.|
