Geert,

I've not seen this issue myself, however, you might get a little more luck
asking over on the MySQLdb mailing list as this seems to be more an issue
with the db than your python code. It might be worth posting your question
there too as it'll heighten your chances of finding someone who knows
MySQLdb inside out.

Cheers,

Robert

Subject: Huge problem gettng MySQLdb to work on my mac mini running Macosx
10.5 Leopard

Hi all,

I have a mac mini running maocosx 10.5 leopard I want to deploy a
django project on. My backend is MySQL, and I have it running as a 64-
bit app. Of course, apache2 is also running as 64-bit.

MySQLdb installs with the usual warnings after applying the various
patches I found here and there. These patches consist of altering
_mysql.c and site.cfg.

Basically, my problem boils down to this:

  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "build/bdist.macosx-10.5-i386/egg/MySQLdb/__init__.py", line
19, in <module>
  File "build/bdist.macosx-10.5-i386/egg/_mysql.py", line 7, in
<module>
  File "build/bdist.macosx-10.5-i386/egg/_mysql.py", line 6, in
__bootstrap__
ImportError: dynamic module does not define init function (init_mysql)


Has anyone solved this? I been hunting around for 2 weeks now, and my
deadline is looming grimly on the horizon :)

Geert
