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>
