I nearly broke down when I was trying to get python-mysql installed because I have to remove mysql-cluster-client-5.1, which I don't know what it is exactly. And when removing it I came across another problem: can't stop mysqld. I use
ps -e | grep mysqld then
sudo kill -9 [that pid] to kill it but it started as another process right away! Then I used
killall -9 mysql and it finally worked!
But something is still not right. Why I have to remove mysql to install python-mysql? If there is actually no mysql, what's python-mysql for? Isn't it an interface to mysql?
Also, in this way I wouldn't be able to use mysql anymore?
So can anyone explain what's the mysql-cluster-client-5.1 for? And why installing python-mysql has to actually remove mysql?
By the way, I have Ubuntu 11.10 x86 installed.
