[Fixed]-How do you install mysql-connector-python (development version) through pip?


I agree, the debian packages appear to be broken for at least Ubuntu 14.04.

The apt-get version and the pip version do not include the 2.1.x releases.

To get it done, I had to grab the source:

$  git clone https://github.com/mysql/mysql-connector-python.git
$  cd mysql-connector-python
$  python ./setup.py build
$  sudo python ./setup.py install


>>> import mysql.connector as msc
>>> msc.__version__
