Problems building MySQLdb on Mac OS X 10.4 (Power PC)

9 years, 2 months ago

Over the last couple of days I've been trying to build and install MySQLdb on my PowerPC based Mac Mini with very little success. I got the following message followed by a ton of type errors:

Compiling with an SDK that doesn't seem to exist: 
Please check your Xcode installation

I tried reinstalling Xcode Tools to see if it would solve the problem but with no success. Anyway after searching around it turns out that the installer doesn't add a required SDK package which you can find in Xcode Tools->Packages on the install disk. It's called MacOSX10.4.Universal.pkg.

I (and others) have not had similar problems on Intel based Macs running Tiger or Leopard so I'm guessing it's specific to the PPC install.

With that out of the way - on with Django.
