    Hey there,

    I started my python script today on Win7 x64 instead of WinXP x86 and the
    MySQLdb is not working anymore :(

    Can somebody help me, or tell me how i can activate the mysql option "skip-
    resolve-name" in MySQLdb?

    And if I use the IP, instead of the hostname, still same problem. Rubberducky
    is pingable and works with WinXP

    without any problems :(

    import MySQLdb
    o = MySQLdb.connect(host="rubberducky", user="test_user", passwd="test_pw", db="test_db")
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
      File "C:\Python26\lib\site-packages\MySQLdb\__init__.py", line 81, in Connect
        return Connection(*args, **kwargs)
      File "C:\Python26\lib\site-packages\MySQLdb\connections.py", line 188, in __in
    it__
        super(Connection, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs2)
    _mysql_exceptions.OperationalError: (1042, "Can't get hostname for your address"
    )
    

    Thx
