View Full Version : Installing python2.4-mysqldb in Karmic?

November 17th, 2009, 05:42 PM
Hi all,

Does anyone know of a good way to install libraries (most importantly MySQLdb) in older versions of python running on Karmic?

I installed python2.4 in order to test whether software is compatible on older systems, however, the MySQL adapter for 2.4 is no longer available in the repos. By installing the package 'python-mysqldb,' the library is installed for both 2.5 and 2.6


dpkg -L python-mysqldb

Any ideas?
