Howdy,

I've successfully installed ruby-rails-mysql on my powerbook, on our  
Windows server, but am missing something on our Linux box.

Ruby is installed (1.8.4), so is rails (0.8.11).  And I got the  
"Congratulations, you put Ruby on Rails!" screen.  I have MySQL  
already installed (it's been there for a long time), version 4.0.25).

Now, I need to install the driver for MySQL/Ruby (mysql-ruby-2.7).   
Here's how the progression goes:

<code>

[richard@www mysql-ruby-2.7]$ ruby ./extconf.rb --with-mysql-dir=/usr
checking for mysql_query() in -lmysqlclient... yes
checking for mysql_ssl_set()... yes
checking for mysql.h... no
checking for mysql/mysql.h... yes
creating Makefile

[richard@www mysql-ruby-2.7]$ make
gcc -fPIC -g -O2  -I. -I/usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/i686-linux -I/usr/ 
local/lib/ruby/1.8/i686-linux -I. -DHAVE_MYSQL_SSL_SET - 
DHAVE_MYSQL_MYSQL_H -I/usr/include  -c mysql.c
gcc -shared  -L'/usr/lib' -Wl,-R'/usr/lib' -L'/usr/local/lib' -Wl,-R'/ 
usr/local/lib' -o mysql.so mysql.o  -lmysqlclient  -ldl -lcrypt -lm    
-lc

[richard@www mysql-ruby-2.7]$ ruby ./test.rb localhost root  
<myrootpass> test
./test.rb:143: undefined method `client_version' for Mysql:Class  
(NoMethodError)

</code>

BTW, I created an empty database called `test`.

Anyone had a similar experience?  Any ideas?

Cheers,
Richard
