The 7.1 DB-API 2.0 Python client _requires_ mx to be installed, whether from
RPM or from source.  As a stopgap measure, I uploaded a version of the mx rpm
with the last 7.1.2 RPMset.

However, I can't really provide those dependencies forever.  The mx rpm
provided in the 7.1.2 download is still ok to use.  I don't think I cleaned
it out.

Check on 'www.rpmfind.net' for an mx RPM for your distribution.

Incidentally, the older PyGreSQL module doesn't require this -- but the newer
pgdb module does.  This is not documented in the main PostgreSQL
documentation, either.

D'Arcy may be able to provide a link to where this is documented properly.

From rpmfind.net:
(http://www.rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/rawhide/1.0/i386/RedHat/RPMS/mx-2.0.1-1.i386.html)
The mx extensions for Python are a collection of Python software tools
which enhance Python's usability in many areas.

Any OS that ships PostgreSQL 7.1.x and doesn't ship mx has a broken
PostgreSQL Python DB-API 2.0 client, AFAICT.
