Iâ??m having trouble getting the native mysql bindings for windows/cygwin
going.   Could someone give me some tips on this?

I tried the gem install and it failedâ?¦ I read elsewhere that you have to
compile all of mysql to use the gem install.  That sounds like a
horrible process, so I sought out the file.

I put mysql.rb in my rubylib.  I tried putting the in cygwin
C:\cygwin\lib\ruby\1.8\i386-cygwin and in the windows directory.  The
performance I see is terrible, so I donâ??t think it took.  Is there a
command to see if the native mysql bindings are being used?

Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated!
