Documents the "ImmutableSet not found" gotcha for MySQLdb

  • docs/databases.txt

     
    7676If you are trying to use an older version of MySQL and the ``mysql_old``
    7777backend, then 1.2.0 *might* work for you.
    7878
     79If you see ``ImportError: cannot import name ImmutableSet``, your MySQLdb
     80installation may contain an outdated ``sets.py`` file that conflicts with
     81the built-in module of the same name from Python 2.4 or later.  To fix this,
     82verify that you have MySQLdb version 1.2.1p2 or newer, then delete any
     83``sets.py`` file in the MySQLdb directory that was left by an earlier version.
