2011-01-30 16:22:55 +0200 answered a question Using mysql in conjuntion with Sage?

I downloaded and extracted the file. I then pasted the MySQL folder inside of my Sage folder. Then in Sage I typed "sudo sage install", but it didn't work. The terminal gave me the output below. This shows that MySQL-python-1.2.3 is now located in my Sage folder.

johndoe@johndoe:~/Sage$ ls  devel     ipython   MySQL-python-1.2.3  sage-README-osx.txt  VERSION.txt    COPYING.txt    examples  local     README.txt          spkg  data   Makefile  sage                sudoku?

Then I started Sage and entered "sudo sage install". The output from this is below.

johndoe@johndoe:~/Sage$ sudo sage install
sudo: sage: command not found

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks, William

I tried the command import MySQLdb, but it didn't work. The output from my terminal is pasted below.

I believe I have the same problem as discussed here

However, I'm so new to Ubuntu, that I don't quite follow. I followed the instructions and ran

import sys
for path in sys.path:
     print path

I then received the output pasted below.


However, I don't understand how to use this information to update the PYTHONPATH environment variable or the library path.

Can anyone help? My basic dilemma is how to ... (more)
