I'm trying to install the mysql module but I can't. I'm installing by
the RubyGems... but happens the following error:

 1. mysql 2.7.3 (mswin32)
 2. mysql 2.7.1 (mswin32)
 3. mysql 2.7 (ruby)
 4. mysql 2.6 (ruby)
 5. Skip this gem
 6. Cancel installation

Hi. I've also had this problem. It seems that there is a problem with
the mysql gem documentation. However from my experience, the gem itself

Hope this helps
