I made modifications to setup.py to set safe threading to NO and also
to point to the "real" location of the mysql libraries and stuff like
that. To test it I wrote a simple script that just tries to connect to
the database. It fails. It also fails interactively. Here is what I
[h000a9578d1ca:~] mike% /usr/local/bin/python2.3 foo.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "foo.py", line 7, in ?
cnn = MySQLdb.connect(dbÛ, user=USER, passwd=PASSWD)
ckages/MySQLdb/__init__.py", line 63, in Connect
return apply(Connection, args, kwargs)
ckages/MySQLdb/connections.py", line 116, in __init__
self.converter[types.StringType] = self.string_literal
TypeError: object does not support item assignment
The download, build and install went fine. This same code works (well,
different database name, user and password) on a different machine.
The database, username and password are all correct.
