I am uncertain how to do this.

When I try to import MySQLdb into python I am getting the error:

File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages/MySQLdb/", line 19, in ?
import _mysql
ImportError: /usr/lib/mysql/ undefined symbol: uncompress

I found this link that seemed to explain the problem:

so what do I do now?

There are lots-o-downloads, on this website, none of them have a word of explanation.

Just stuff like "Shared Libraries" vs "Shared Compatibility Libraries"... What's the difference?! Guess we just download them and try to figure it out eh?

Also, I am running the MySQL that come on my Linux installation 4.1.7-4 vs 4.1.21-0 which is available for download.

If anyone can point me in the right direction here, I will be your best friend since 1st grade!

Should I just start over and re-install MYSQL?
