Dear All,

I am quite new to Boinc.

My system is:
Suse Linux 10
MySQL 4.1.13
Php 4.4.0
mysqldb 1.2.1
Python 2.4.1

It seemed I successfully installed mysqldb and boinc since there was no error. After that, I entered boinc/tools, and tried to create a new project with "make_project cplan". Unfortunately, Python reported some errors like followings:

File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/MySQLdb/", line 34, in ? from sets import ImmutableSet
ImportError: cannot import name ImmutableSet

I guess it might be a problem associated with mysqldb or python.

Any inputs are very welcome!!

Many thanks

Hi MR.

I experienced the same problem when running the test/ script with python2.4 and MySQLdb1.2.1

I found a fix on the following page:

In short.
1 Goto the site-packages library for your current version of python and MySQLdb. (In my case: /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/MySQLdb)

2 Remove:, sets.pyc and sets.pyo

Everything was set :-) then in my case.

Cheers Andreas
