Each Answer to this Q is separated by one/two green lines.
This is what I tried:
$ easy_install-2.6 -d /home/user/lib/python2.6 MySQLdb Searching for MySQLdb Reading http://pypi.python.org/simple/MySQLdb/ Couldn't find index page for 'MySQLdb' (maybe misspelled?) Scanning index of all packages (this may take a while) Reading http://pypi.python.org/simple/ No local packages or download links found for MySQLdb error: Could not find suitable distribution for Requirement.parse('MySQLdb')
You have the wrong package name.
MySQL-python is the right one:
pip install MySQL-python
Adam is right but before you run
easy_install MySQL-python you need to make sure
python-dev is installed as it is not installed by default.
Install is with
apt-get install python-dev.
If you are using “yum” the command is
sudo yum install python-devel (where ‘sudo’ may be optional depending on your user account)
