Gem install mysql - not showing the right options


I am trying to install the native mysql drivers using “gem install
mysql” on Fedora 6 machine and following are the options shown:


Select which gem to install for your platform (i386-linux)

  1. mysql 2.7.2006.05.10 (mswin32)
  2. mysql 2.7.2006.04.21 (mswin32)
  3. mysql 2.7.3 (mswin32)
  4. mysql 2.7.3 (mswin32)
  5. Skip this gem
  6. Cancel installation


I tried the following but with the same results. What’s missing? It’s
only showing “mswin32” option.

gem install mysql – --with-mysql-dir=/var/lib/mysql
