P4DTI issue job000637

TitleMySQLdb RPM depends on mx Python module which may not be present
Assigned userNick Barnes
DescriptionThe Bugzilla P4DTI requires the Python "MySQLdb" package, to connect to the MySQL database containing the Bugzilla data. This package is available in various forms. The AG links to an RPM for MySQLdb 0.9.1 for Red Hat Linux 7.3. This RPM requires another package, called "mx", to be present in order to install successfully. The AG should either link to an RPM which doesn't require mx or should mention that this mx package is necessary and provide a link to it.
AnalysisThis MySQLdb RPM is the same one distributed with Red Hat Linux 7.3. That's a good thing, because it means users are more likely to be using the same MySQLdb as developers and testers. So add a link to the mx RPM which is also distributed with Red Hat Linux 7.3.
