- freshly installed windows xp en with sp2, updated.
- Ruby installed from one-click package (tried with ruby184-16p3.exe and
ruby184-17_rc2.exe as well).
- mysql installed: `gem install mysql` (mysql 2.7.2006.04.21 (mswin32))

and when trying to load mysql irb: require 'mysql' a windows error
message popup's: "(title: ruby.exe - unable to locate component)
 This application has failed to start because LIBMYSQL.dll was not
 found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

i think there can be some kind of problem with the mysql 2.7.2006.04.21
version, coz i haven't got any problems with the previous one (btw. how
to find/install the previous version?)

you need to get this dll stupid! :D the best way is to use
one from the official mysql client:
