I've got the same problem.

Running mysql 5.1.35. After discovering that I should change to 32 bit version, repeated all the steps and got the same error about the init function.

>>> import MySQLdb
import sys, pkg_resources, imp
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
File "MySQLdb/", line 19, in <module>
import _mysql
File "build/bdist.macosx-10.5-i386/egg/", line 7, in <module>
File "build/bdist.macosx-10.5-i386/egg/", line 6, in __bootstrap__
ImportError: dynamic module does not define init function (init_mysql)

After a couple of hours debugging I noticed that the dist and build dirs of MySQLdb 1.2.2 were not removed when I issue a python clean.

I manually removed both of them and got everything working fine.
