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 machine? Thanks, Tobiah -- https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/python-list
