Can't install Mongrel and My SQL gem on Windows XP 64 bit

I have no access to the Internet to be able to install all needed gems,
so I downloaded them one by one and put to a local folder:

  • cgi_multipart_eof_fix-2.5.0.gem,
  • fastthread-1.0.7.gem,
  • gem_plugin-0.2.3.gem
  • json-1.1.9.gem
  • json_pure-1.1.9.gem
  • mongrel-1.1.5.gem
  • needle-1.3.0.gem
  • net-scp-1.0.2.gem
  • net-ssh-1.1.4.gem
  • net-ssh-2.0.15.gem
  • rack-1.0.1.gem
  • rails-2.3.4.gem
  • actionmailer-2.3.4.gem
  • actionpack-2.3.4.gem
  • activerecord-2.3.4.gem
  • activeresource-2.3.4.gem
  • activesupport-2.3.4.gem
  • rake-0.8.7.gem
  • mysql-2.8.1.gem

Then I tried to install them as follows:

  1. Install Ruby via Windows installer ruby186-27_rc2.exe.

ruby -v

ruby 1.8.6 (2008-08-11 patchlevel 287) [i386-mswin32]

  1. Install RubyGems 1.3.5:
  • I unzipped the rubygems-1.3.5.tgz
  • cd gems/rubygems-1.3.5
  • ruby setup.rb

gem -v
1.3.5

  1. Checked available gems before installing:

So no way to install the 2 essential for me gems: mysql and mongrel.
Does anybody have an idea how to resolve these problems?

Thanks.

For you to avoid triggering the gem compilation process, you need to
download already compiled binaries.

Instead of mysql-2.8.1.gem you need to download mysql-2.8.1-x86-
mswin32-60.gem

x86-mswin32-60 and x86-mswin32 are the gem platform that identifies
your Ruby installation.

You can find these gems in the RubyGems website and download from
there:

http://rubygems.org/gems/mongrel/versions/1.1.5-x86-mswin32-60
http://rubygems.org/gems/mysql/versions/2.8.1-x86-mswin32

Please note that you will also need any MySQL 5.0.x, preferable the
noinstall packages, as you need a 32bits version of libmysql.dll

You can find similar details in the RubyInstaller wiki page:

http://wiki.github.com/oneclick/rubyinstaller/tutorials

HTH,

I didn’t find mysql-2.8.1-x86- mswin32-60.gem, just
mysql-2.8.1-x86-mswin32.gem, is it a typo ?
Ok for mongrel gem , I’ll try to install them tomorrow and let you know.
THank you.

No, some gems do not strict the mswin32 version, x86-mswin32 is
compatible with x86-mswin32-60

It is safe to download that version.
