Maybe your need to upgrade your RoR MySQL client.
I don’t remember the details but I did it just after having problems
connection to MySQL from RoR and installed MySQL/Ruby with gem
Try gem install mysql
thanks for your quick reply all this stuff seems a little less
impossible when you got good forums…
ok sigh… every step in setting this up seems to be met with problems
when i run the command your talking about i get the folling vauge error
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.
I dont understand how there could be a problem with the make file as i
was about to install ruby and ruby gems with no problems
