Anirudh, i appreciate your enthusiasm, but please check the documentation
before shooting a question to the mailing list. you obviously have note. the
docs says refer README for installation notes and then the README says very

Finally, putting it together::

>   $ tar xfz MySQL-python-1.2.1.tar.gz

  $ cd MySQL-python-1.2.1

  $ python setup.py build

  $ sudo python setup.py install # or su first

please use the mailing list wisely.
