I am trying to get a Python script to run on the linux server I’m connected to via ssh. The script uses mysqldb. I have all the other components I need, but when I try to install mySQLdb via setuptools like so:,
python setup.py install
I get the following error report related to the
sh: mysql_config: command not found Traceback (most recent call last): File "setup.py", line 15, in <module> metadata, options = get_config() File "/usr/lib/python2.5/MySQL-python-1.2.3/setup_posix.py", line 43, in get_config libs = mysql_config("libs_r") File "/usr/lib/python2.5/MySQL-python-1.2.3/setup_posix.py", line 24, in mysql_config raise EnvironmentError("%s not found" % (mysql_config.path,)) EnvironmentError: mysql_config not found
Has anyone else encountered this error and if so how did you resolve it/what can I do to successfully install mysqldb?
