I had many python modules installed before I upgraded Mavericks and were very disappointed when I noticed that they had been removed. I installed Mavericks, and I installed the command line tools.

Then I went on trying to download and compile MySQL-python since I need it for my development. It raises compiler warnings during install and then just freezes.

Here are the compiler warnings:

Seems like it complains on a lot of variables already defined. But I don't know how to solve these problems since I don't really know what's going on. And I don't think trying to edit the source will give me any good answers.

I have tried to use both pip and easy_install to install the extension. Both generate warnings and freezes. Please help me :)
