I was following the hivelogic.com article ‘Building Ruby, Rails,
and MySQL on Tiger’
all went well till the last part, MySQL Native Bindings.
anyways, i recieved an error:
blinking8s:~ blinking8s$ sudo gem install mysql –

- Cancel installation
Building native extensions. This could take a while…
*** extconf.rb failed ***
Could not create Makefile due to some reason, probably lack of
necessary libraries and/or headers. Check the mkmf.log file for more
details. You may need configuration options.
Provided configuration options:
ERROR: While executing gem … (RuntimeError)
ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.
Gem files will remain installed in

I have googled for the results and found several solutions, but i am no
unix/server geek…just a photographer who has been enjoying rails
for the last 2 days on his locomotive/mamp setup to try to take it to
next step and not have to use some funky configuration paths…
i am running OSX 10.4.7
any help on what i should run to get that working, or do to get rid of
mistake, would be awesome…
