Hello, I'm new to Python, have v3.0 32bit installed on Windows 7, installed distribute, now trying to install pymysql and am getting the below error. Any pointers on how to fix? thanks!! -Noah

[C:\Python32]pip install --upgrade distribute
Real name of requirement distribute is distribute
Requirement already up-to-date: distribute in c:\python32\lib\site-packages\dist
ribute-0.6.28-py3.2.egg
Cleaning up...

[C:\Python32]easy_install pymysql
Searching for pymysql
Reading http://pypi.python.org/simple/pymysql/
Couldn't find index page for 'pymysql' (maybe misspelled?)
Scanning index of all packages (this may take a while)
Reading http://pypi.python.org/simple/
Reading http://pypi.python.org/simple/PyMySQL/
Reading http://code.google.com/p/pymysql
Best match: PyMySQL 0.5
Downloading http://pypi.python.org/packages/sour...QL-0.5.tar.gz#
md5=125e8a3449e05afcb04874a19673426b
Processing PyMySQL-0.5.tar.gz
error: Not a recognized archive type: c:\users\noahco~1\appdata\local\temp\easy_
install-gpekqc\PyMySQL-0.5.tar.gz

Nobody seems to have responded to this (or I haven't seen it), but it
looks like your system can't extract gzip files. Suggestions found on
other fora (at the opposite end of a Google search) point to possibly
using pip instead of easy_install; alternatively, you may be able to
install a Windows gzip utility, though I don't know anything about
linking that up with easy_install.

Sorry I can't be of more help! But maybe bumping this thread will
bring it to someone's attention who actually knows.
