When I tried to install MySQL-python module on a CentOS 8 machine, I got this error message:
_mysql.c:44:10: fatal error: my_config.h: No such file or directory
On previous distribution, I can add the my_config.h by installing the mysql-devel package. However, my_config.h is not included in the package on CentOS 8.
I could not find any package for CentOS 8 with that file. However, I found the source file for 8.0.11 on MySQL’s official site.
I created a my_config.h file under /usr/include and copy the content of the source file to the file I just created. I was able to install MySQL-python module afterward.
