Mysql gem fails to install using Ruby 1.9.1


#1

I can’t get the MySQL gem to install using Ruby 1.9.1.

gem install mysql – --with-mysql-config=/usr/bin/mysql_config
Building native extensions. This could take a while…
ERROR: Error installing mysql:

My Ruby is installed from source:

ruby -v
ruby 1.9.1p0 (2009-01-30 revision 21907) [i686-linux]

My MySQL is installed from packages:

dpkg -l|grep mysql
ii libmysqlclient15-dev 5.1.30really5.0.75-0ubuntu9
MySQL database development files
ii libmysqlclient15off 5.1.30really5.0.75-0ubuntu9
MySQL database client library
ii mysql-client-5.0 5.1.30really5.0.75-0ubuntu9
MySQL database client binaries
ii mysql-common 5.1.30really5.0.75-0ubuntu9
MySQL database common files

My mysql_config exists and seems to work:

/usr/bin/mysql_config
Usage: /usr/bin/mysql_config [OPTIONS]
Options:
–cflags [-I/usr/include/mysql -DBIG_JOINS=1 -fPIC
-fno-strict-aliasing]
–include [-I/usr/include/mysql]
–libs [-Wl,-Bsymbolic-functions -rdynamic
-L/usr/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient]
–libs_r [-Wl,-Bsymbolic-functions -rdynamic
-L/usr/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient_r]
–socket [/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock]
–port [0]
–version [5.0.75]
–libmysqld-libs [-Wl,-Bsymbolic-functions -rdynamic
-L/usr/lib/mysql -lmysqld -lwrap -lrt]

And finally, I have several version.h files:

locate version.h
/usr/include/linux/version.h
/usr/include/linux/dvb/version.h
/usr/src/ruby-1.9.1-p0/version.h

If there’s a better place to ask about this, please let me know.

Thanks,
