Ruby interpreter error in Windows Vista

Hi there everyone,

I have had a stable dev environment for some time now, well until my
laptop was stolen :frowning: I am in the process of getting everything set-up
again but I am facing a problem with the Ruby interpreter. I am using
1.8.6 patch level 111, I switched back from MySQL 5.1 to a 5.0
version, I have the MySQL gem 2.8.1 installed with Rails 2.3.4.

When running any Rails app, have so far just used it with Mongrel as
the server, I get the following error:

multibyte/chars.rb:158: [BUG] Segmentation fault
ruby 1.8.6 (2007-09-24) [i386-mswin32]

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an
unusual way.
Please contact the application’s support team for more information.

Any ideas on how I can go about resolving this? I am in the process of
getting VirualBox so I can run Ubuntu in there and use it for all my
Ruby/Rails development but, I would love to have this issue on Windows
resolved in the mean time.

Thank you,

Hi all,

I completely removed MySQL 5.1, reconfigured the 5.0 instance and the
copied the libmysql.dll to ruby/bin and everything is working!
