Trying to setup a clean Mac os X 10.6 install to build up python/django and that i did not remember running into this on 10.5.
After setting up MySQL in the installer on
mysql-5.5.8-osx10.6-x86_64.dmg I went
$ sudo pip install MySQL-python
also it appeared to visit easily (output below)

following this I attempted:
$ python -c "import MySQLdb"
also it crapped on me with:
Traceback (newest call last): File "<string>", line 1, in <module> File "/Library/Python/2.6/site-packages/MySQLdb/__init__.py", line 19, in <module> import _mysql ImportError: dlopen(/Library/Python/2.6/site-packages/_mysql.so, 2): Library not loaded: libmysqlclient.16.dylib Recommended from: /Library/Python/2.6/site-packages/_mysql.so Reason: image not found
So onto my question...
What did I actually do wrong?/What else should i do?
Searching (and looking out here) with this returns lots of results getting this error message with Ruby very few with Python tho.
Just set the
DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH after running
pip install or
Should get the job done presuming your MySQL installation lives under
libmysqlclient.16.dylib. That's, the shared library that can serve as the bridge between Python and also the MySQL client library,
_mysql.so, refers back to the dynamic library for that MySQL client library, which library can't be loaded for whatever reason.
Questions you have to answer:
- It is possible to
libmysqlclient.16.dylibanywhere in your system? Otherwise, you have to install the MySQL client software.
- If that's the case, may be the directory that contains that library inside your
DYLD_LIBRARY_PATHsetting? Otherwise, try adding it.
- If that's the case, you will need to be sure that the
libmysqlclient.16.dylibfile isn't corrupt. My copy, set up in
/opt/local/lib/mysql5/mysql/libmysqlclient.16.dylib, thanks to MacPorts, has MD5 signature
c79ee91af08057dfc269ee212915801aand it is 1,462,376 bytes in dimensions. Exactly what does your copy seem like?
