Bug Description

just installed MySQL Connector/Python, configured examples in python2 sub-dir, tried to run engine.py and got following error:
myDir> src/mysql-connector-python-0.3.2-devel/python2/examples> python engines.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "engines.py", line 35, in <module>
  File "engines.py", line 16, in main
    db = mysql.connector.Connect(**config)
  File "/home/localDummy/localRoot/lib/python2.6/site-packages/mysql/connector/__init__.py", line 45, in Connect
    return MySQLConnection(*args, **kwargs)
  File "/home/localDummy/localRoot/lib/python2.6/site-packages/mysql/connector/connection.py", line 366, in __init__
    self.connect(*args, **kwargs)

    "MySQL Version %s is not supported." % version)
TypeError: not all arguments converted during string formatting

--> probably a minor bug in creating the error message
db.__version__: (0, 3, 2, 'devel', 292)

Yes, the error should not give an error. :)

(Note however that we will not support MySQL 3.23.)

Changed in myconnpy:
status: New → Confirmed
importance: Undecided → Low
assignee: nobody → Geert JM Vanderkelen (geertjmvdk)

Quickly fixing this with something like this:

         if version < (4,1):
                raise errors.InterfaceError(
                    "MySQL Version %s is not supported." % \
