Hey everybody

It's been a while - I hope everybody's good.

Having a bit of an issue, and hoping somebody can help. I'm trying to use py in pd-extended 0.41.4 to add to a mysql db table using MySQLdb. The python script works fine on its own, but once I get it into py I get the following errors:

py - No namespace available
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/Users/dafydd/Documents/pd/Sound Sorter/db_add.py", line 1, in <module>
    import MySQLdb
  File "build/bdist.macosx-10.6-universal/egg/MySQLdb/__init__.py", line 19, in <module>
  File "build/bdist.macosx-10.6-universal/egg/_mysql.py", line 7, in <module>
  File "build/bdist.macosx-10.6-universal/egg/_mysql.py", line 6, in __bootstrap__
ImportError: dynamic module does not define init function (init_mysql)

I've done some searching and it sounds like this might be an issue with 32bit vs 64 bit builds, but I have no idea where to start. I'm on a macbook pro i7 (64 bit, right?). Would Pd have an effect here? Have I screwed something up?

Sorry to be so vague - using the py/python/mysql combination is pretty new to me.
