version 0.4.0 has a bug with mysql does not support port number on connect when datasource is connected. version 0.4.1 is requited. I could not find a stright download for that, it seems one should manualy patch, see issue 70 and issue 139 july 29 2009 on crunchyfrog website.

This page is also missing an important step, for mysql to install python to mysql db module. There is fine print on the crunchyfrog installation instruction... that is:

sudo apt-get install python-MySQLdb
