Want to build the mysql gem for the system’s Ruby and use the mysql binary you just installed from mysql.org?
Easy, has wonko.com has the answer and it worked perfectly! I love Google.
airbot:~ $ sudo env ARCHFLAGS="-arch i386" gem install mysql -- \ > --with-mysql-dir=/usr/local/mysql --with-mysql-lib=/usr/local/mysql/lib \ > --with-mysql-include=/usr/local/mysql/include Password: Bulk updating Gem source index for: http://gems.rubyforge.org Building native extensions. This could take a while... Successfully installed mysql-2.7 1 gem installed
And your off…..
Update: don’t forget to add the gems require at the top of your ruby scripts:
This will get rid of the
in `require': no such file to load -- mysql (LoadError)
errors. On my linux machine, mysql was not installed as a gem so I didn’t have the require in my scripts.
