I'm trying to setup python mysql. I'm working through the following tutorial:
I'm all good until set 5. When I run
$ python setup.py clean
and I get in return
/Users/msmith/Downloads/MySQL-python-1.2.4b4/distribute-0.6.28-py2.7.egg Traceback (most recent call last): File "setup.py", line 7, in <module> use_setuptools() File "/Users/msmith/Downloads/MySQL-python-1.2.4b4/distribute_setup.py", line 145, in use_setuptools return _do_download(version, download_base, to_dir, download_delay) File "/Users/msmith/Downloads/MySQL-python-1.2.4b4/distribute_setup.py", line 125, in _do_download _build_egg(egg, tarball, to_dir) File "/Users/msmith/Downloads/MySQL-python-1.2.4b4/distribute_setup.py", line 116, in _build_egg raise IOError('Could not build the egg.') IOError: Could not build the egg.
I've had success following these tips:
First try installing with pip:
pip install mysql-python
Then: (From here: Django Error: vertualenv EnvironmentError: mysql_config not found)
echo "mysql_config = /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_config" >> ~/.virtualenvs/ENV_NAME/build/MySQL-python/site.cfg
Then, (from here: cc1: error: unrecognized command line option "-Wno-null-conversion" within installing python-mysql on mac 10.7.5)
"Try to Remove cflags -Wno-null-conversion -Wno-unused-private-field [from] /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_config."
then, simply install again: pip install mysql-python
Then (from here: Python mysqldb: Library not loaded: libmysqlclient.18.dylib)
sudo ln -s /usr/local/mysql/lib/libmysqlclient.18.dylib /usr/lib/libmysqlclient.18.dylib
Then it should work!
Nothing helped for me. I had to update MySQL-python to 1.2.5, and that resolved the issue.
Please use this version fixes this problem.
I just had this issue...my requirements.txt file looks as bellow:
Django==1.6 MySQL-python==1.2.4 South==0.8.4 ... distribute==0.6.31
What worked for me was:
- Comment the line for MySQL-python
- Execute the "pip install -r requirements.txt"
- Uncomment again MySQL-python
- Run again the pip install.
So, I think that the issue is some kind of dependency with the "distribute" version installed (OR to be installed in my case).
