FAQ
Where is the MX RPM ? I didn't see this in the 7.1.3 RPM, for RH 7.1 and also Mdk 8.0.
And by the way, it was asked when I tried to install the PostgreSQL Python module.
I know 7.1.2 RH 7.1 has this MX RPM.

Thank's
Andy

    The 7.1 DB-API 2.0 Python client _requires_ mx to be installed, whether from
    RPM or from source. As a stopgap measure, I uploaded a version of the mx rpm
    with the last 7.1.2 RPMset.

    However, I can't really provide those dependencies forever. The mx rpm
    provided in the 7.1.2 download is still ok to use. I don't think I cleaned
    it out.

    Check on 'www.rpmfind.net' for an mx RPM for your distribution.

    Incidentally, the older PyGreSQL module doesn't require this -- but the newer
    pgdb module does. This is not documented in the main PostgreSQL
    documentation, either.

    D'Arcy may be able to provide a link to where this is documented properly.

    From rpmfind.net:
    (http://www.rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/rawhide/1.0/i386/RedHat/RPMS/mx-2.0.1-1.i386.html)
    The mx extensions for Python are a collection of Python software tools
    which enhance Python's usability in many areas.

    Any OS that ships PostgreSQL 7.1.x and doesn't ship mx has a broken
    PostgreSQL Python DB-API 2.0 client, AFAICT.
