I have been attempting to get rails + mysql working for me literally
all day. I am on a Windows XP SP2 machine using the latest one-click
installer for ruby and gem for rails.
What am I missing here? The rails and mysql db do not want to talk
to each other properly. I tried to do a gem install mysql to get the
latest mysql and that always crashes because it seems to be looking for
linux named .so files instead of the .dll’s which are used in windows.
I have tried this with the 4.1 essential series of mysql and with
the newly releasd 5.0 essential series. If anyone has any insight as to
what version of everything I need to use and any extra steps I need to
take I would greatly appreciate it. I am going to uninstall ruby and
mysql tomorrow morning and start from scratch - hopefully with an idea
from you all.
Desperately trying to get things working,
