I have an older Ubuntu machine, 8.04 that
errors when I try to do conn.select_db().
AttributeError: 'Connection' object has no attribute 'select_db'
My 16.4 box acts as I'd expect. Did this get added at some
point? I'd really like to be able to get generic links so
I can do things like "show databases" and then maybe
select_db() after that. It's also handy to be able to
change databases on the fly for things like looking at the
table set in multiple databases.
The main docs that I can find only show select_db() under the
_mysql library, yet my new machine is supporting it from
the MySQLdb library. Are the docs lagging? Can I download
the 'better' MySQLdb package and install it on the 8.04
