Please help install DBI on a Windows systems

I’m very frustrated because I’ve just spent the past few hours in the
middle of the night (the sun is already up) trying to figure out how to
install DBI for MySQL for Ruby on a Windows system and just failing
horribly.
You’d think it would be as simple as moving some files to the proper
directory and having everything “just work.” Indeed, if it’s more
complicated than that then I think someone screwed up.
Anyway, how the hell do I get this thing to work?
Thank you…

Thereâ??s a good tutorial, including installation instructions located
here http://www.kitebird.com/articles/ruby-dbi.html.

I can’t help you with DBI. I tried it got it installed and got nothing
because the MySQL driver refused to load. But you can get going using
MySQL
anyway

We have decided to devote part of our time hunting down and aggregating
information and files like this. Maybe even starting a Newbie forum
since
rubynuby.org is not showing any signs of life.

Okay, now there is a tutorial covering DBI and specifically Patricks
problem
with installation.

There is also documentation on the DBI methods. The tutorial needs some
clean up and we are working on some examples and further exploration
into
DBI.

You may see me start some threads on where to find some of the database
drivers like those for Firebird and SQLRelay.

If you are using the One-Click Ruby Installer for Windows, then DBI is
already included, and all you need is the MySQL/Ruby driver for DBI.
You can pick up an already built binary here:

You’ll want to pull the source from RubyForge, not SourceForge:

http://rubyforge.org/projects/ruby-dbi/

Also, there’s an entry for ruby-dbi on the RAA:

http://raa.ruby-lang.org/project/ruby-dbi/
