Google app engine doesn't work using python2

I downloaded the app engine from the site and tried to use it with python2 but it would not work. So I found the app engine package from AUR and installed that. I put the python command into the terminal pointing to the directory I have all of my website files and I get this error:

$ /home/ricky/Dropbox/Linux/Programming/HTML/
WARNING  2012-12-31 21:32:53,605] The rdbms API is not available because the MySQLdb library could not be loaded.

You can port your existing data using the --port_sqlite_data flag or
purge your previous test data with --clear_datastore.

    return getattr(self._sock,name)(*args)
socket.gaierror: [Errno -2] Name or service not known

I have a file in that directory along with the .yaml file:


import webapp2

class MainPage(webapp2.RequestHandler):
    def get(self):
        self.response.headers['Content-Type'] = 'text/plain'
        self.response.write('Hello, webapp2 World!')
app = webapp2.WSGIApplication([('/', MainPage)], debug=True)


application: thoughtsofageographer
version: 1
runtime: python27
api_version: 1
threadsafe: yes

- url: /.*

- name: webapp2
  version: "2.5.2"

I have python(3) installed and the newest python2 package installed. I am not sure if this is a problem with the google app package itself or python or if one of these files are coded wrong.

Re: Google app engine doesn't work using python2

Has anyone else experienced this problem with the google app engine?
