MySQLdb Error 1251 trying to connect
I have just installed MySQL on my Windows XP PC - and I can use it from the command line software provided with MySQL.
Next I downloaded MySQL-Python.exe-0.9.2.win32-py2.3.exe
And tried the folowing programme :-
connection = MySQLdb.Connect(db='pacsmain', host="localhost", user="root", passwd="paul47")
The error I get is 1251 (Client does not support authentication protocol ....)
I then tried the zip version of MySQLdb - same result.
Can anyone tell me what is this error all about?

I think I now know the answer - I have installed MySQL 4.1 and the binary MySQLdb does not support 4.1.
