I was fallowing the steps as mentioned in the documentation, after I ran askbot-setup I got the message saying NEXT STEP: install python binding for mysql pip install mysql-python

when I do that I get the following error, I have done an installation before in a different server, and never saw this error in that server. What could be the reason?

NEXT STEP: install python binding for mysql
pip install mysql-python

(myVirtualEnv)myhost@someserver:/export/scratch/code/myVirtualEnv/ask$ pip install mysql-python
