Hello all, first time poster. I installed ruby 1.8.2 without a hitch and am trying to install drivers for accessing MySQL I tried to install mysql-ruby-2.6 with the following: ruby extconf.rb --with-mysql-include=/usr/include/mysql --with-mysql-lib=/var/lib/mysql make make install (no errors) and ruby-dbi-all-0.0.21 with: ruby setup.rb config --with=dbi,dbd_mysql ruby setup.rb setup ruby setup.rb install (no errors here either) But when i attempt to run a simple script: ================================================== require "dbi" DBI.connect("dbi:Mysql:database:host", "user", "pass") do |dbh| # prepare can take a code block, passes the statement handle # to it, and automatically calls finish at the end of the block dbh.prepare("SHOW DATABASES") do |sth| sth.execute puts "Databases: " + sth.fetch_all.join(", ") end # execute can take a code block, passes the statement handle # to it, and automatically calls finish at the end of the block dbh.execute("SHOW DATABASES") do |sth| puts "Databases: " + sth.fetch_all.join(", ") end end ================================================== I get a bad segfault error: /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/DBD/Mysql/Mysql.rb:465: [BUG] Segmentation fault ruby 1.8.2 (2004-12-25) [i686-linux] Aborted Can anyone shed any light on the situation? I am quite stuck on where to fix this. Thanks in advance

I'm not sure what's going on but you may not need to use extconf.rb You might try installing mysql via the RubyGems system. and then reinstalling DBI What system are you on? This kind of information is usually helpful for those looking to assist you.

Depending on your environment, Ruby-MySQL can have frustrating problems. See http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.ruby/brow... and http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.ruby/brow... for more discussion. I've had times when Ruby-MySQL through DBI won't work for me, so what I've done is: 1. Install MySQL-Ruby (which is a pure Ruby version) from http://www.tmtm.org/en/mysql/ruby/ . 2. Edit your Mysql.rb DBD file. The line that says require 'mysql' should instead say require 'mysql.rb' You're coercing the DBD to use the .rb version, instead of the .so version. This is terribly annoying, of course, but for me it's less annoying than futzing around endlessly with build configuration. I'm an admin on the Ruby-DBI project, and with any luck will be able to commit this into the head in the next few weeks. f.
