I am new to both ruby and am trying to install the API for mysql using the link http://raa.ruby-lang.org/project/mysql-ruby/. I am using version 1.8.4 for ruby and 5.0.19-nt for mysql. Following the readme-winpkg I entered ruby install.rb -n and got install mingw32/mysql.so => c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/i386-msvcrt I then ran the simple.rb # simple.rb - simple MySQL script using Ruby MySQL module require "mysql" begin # connect to the MySQL server dbh = Mysql.real_connect("localhost", "testuser", "testpass", "test") # get server version string and display it puts "Server version: " + dbh.get_server_info rescue MysqlError => e print "Error code: ", e.errno, "\n" print "Error message: ", e.error, "\n" ensure # disconnect from server dbh.close end from http://www.kitebird.com/articles/ruby-mysql.html and got: Error code:1251 Error message: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading mysql client simple.rb:13: undefined method 'close' for nil:NilClass <NoMethodError> Are there any suggestion on how I can get the ruby API for mysql installed and running?

You can google around and look for a windows mysql.so binary for mysql 5 Zach -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.1 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Thunderbird - http://enigmail.mozdev.org iD8DBQFEVWcYMyx0fW1d8G0RAkucAJ9WM17WO9oBgUS3Dz8/ws/TL627kgCdG9eR mNRRLFRCz3BXIZWXsgNzyP8= =ItHG -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
