Mysql ruby deployment gem ...bla bla

“gem install mysql” failed. This might be another stupid question, but
really block me for couple of days.

I tried gem:
gem install mysql – --with-mysql-config=/usr/bin/mysql_config

and got:
ERROR: Error installing mysql:
ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.

/usr/local/bin/ruby extconf.rb

–with-mysql-config=/usr/bin/mysql_config
extconf.rb:1: command not found: /usr/bin/mysql_config --cflags
*** extconf.rb failed ***

This might be something wrong with mysql becouse ‘mysql_config’ can not
be located.
[[email protected] ~]# whereis mysql_config
mysql_config:

I also tried mysql-ruby:
[[email protected] mysql-ruby-2.8.1]# ruby extconf.rb
–with-mysql-dir=/usr/bin/mysql

Indeed, you are missing the MySQL client and (probably) development
files. You should install them using your package manager and try again.
