One hot gym - can’t connect to MySQL server on Ubuntu

#1

I’m getting this issue on Ubuntu Desktop 64 bit 18.04 after following the install instructions from here: Installing NuPIC on Ubuntu 12

When running python swarm.py it throws following error:

The fix was to run:

sudo mysql -u root

and then:

ALTER USER 'root'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password BY '';

I can’t wait until we have a Python 3 Version of NuPIC without MySQL. :confounded:
