Hi,

I got Mac OS X 15.6 installed, Locomotive 2.0.8 and MYSQL 5.0.67
running. I’m having this problem when I try to install mysql gem:

your post says:
‘You’re running: ruby 1.8.4’

while on ror.org is written:
‘We recommend Ruby 1.8.7 for use with Rails.’

1.8.4 should work, too. but to make sure it ain’t a version-conflict,
i’d update.

other than that, did you follow this hint?:
‘OS X 10.5: Included with developer tools (then do “gem update
rails”)’

Hi MaD,

When I try to update it appens this:

MBPEduCirilo:kshema098 eduardocirilo$ gem update rails
Updating installed gems
Nothing to update

How can I update to Ruby 1.8.7? Is there another way?

Regards,
Ed

Have you installed mysql-client?


#5

If you’re on an Intel mac, try this:

sudo env ARCHFLAGS="-arch i386" gem install mysql –
–with-mysql-dir=/usr/local/mysql
sudo ln -s /usr/local/mysql/lib /usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql

Just be sure to get the mysql directories right to match your system
setup. These are the default for the MySQL binaries.

You’re trying to update the rails framework, not ruby.

^ make sure you’Re getting 1.8.7 (which is the latest stable). 1.9.1
still causes problems with some gems.

Be sure to read the comments – there is a fix in the comments for the
install command that might help you.


#11

you might also consider using sudo so it wont install in .gem

Done !!!

What a lot of headache :S

Thanks for all m8s…


#13

I’m having the same issue except it happens when I simply do:

sudo gem install mysql

Does anyone know of a fix?

I’ve tried just about everything.

you need to tell the install scripts where the mysql libraries/headers
are (eg see the link Brent posted)

I’ve tried just about everything.

While I’m sure you may feel that way (I’m sure we can all empathise
with that) it’s a singularly unhelpful thing to say, you could very
easily put off the person with the answer by making them think “oh,
he’s probably already tried what I was going to suggest”.
