MySQL & Ruby on Debian (sidux)

May 21, 2009

I’ve started learning Ruby on Rails, and I needed the mysql driver. Should be simple,
right? Just gem install mysql or something?

It wasn’t.

Once tangled mess of Google, Debian, and Ruby later, I found a bug report and a solution (for me at least).

Debian Bug 373843 – Long story short, you need ruby1.8-dev or, it appears, libmysql-ruby.
