Setting up mysql for python

OK, after trying to setting up my virtual environment for django I was struggling working with mysql.

What I was getting is after running:

$ pip install MySQL-python

EnvironmentError: mysql_config not found

So basically what was needed was to reinstall mysql again but now for my local environment:

$ sudo apt-get build-dep python-mysqldb

$ pip install mysql-python

And the just run the migration:

$ python migrate
Operations to perform:
  Apply all migrations: admin, contenttypes, auth, sessions
Running migrations:
  Applying contenttypes.0001_initial... OK
  Applying auth.0001_initial... OK
  Applying admin.0001_initial... OK
  Applying sessions.0001_initial... OK

Running correctly.
