Hey all...

I'm having a lot of problem trying to use DBI with Mysql in last 2 days 
and I have no idea of how to do it, and I've already tried dozens of 
different solutions.

Here is a brief history of my tests:

The code I'm testing is:

require "dbi" (or "DBI")

class test_dbi

    def selectAll

       begin
         # connect to the MySQL server
         dbh = DBI.connect("DBI:Mysql:CMASDB_V41_2:192.168.253.29", 
"cmasAdmin", "cmas_admin")
         # get server version string and display it
         row = dbh.select_one("SELECT VERSION()")
         puts "Server version: " + row[0]
       rescue DBI::DatabaseError => e
         puts "An error occurred"
         puts "Error code: #{e.err}"
         puts "Error message: #{e.errstr}"
       ensure
         # disconnect from server
         dbh.disconnect if dbh
       end

    end

end


With this code I got the follwing error message:

Could not load driver (uninitialized constant Mysql::Driver)
RAILS_ROOT: C:/eclipse322/workspace/cmas41_rails

Application Trace | Framework Trace | Full Trace
C:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/dbi/dbi.rb:511:in `load_driver'
C:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/dbi/dbi.rb:401:in `_get_full_driver'
C:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/dbi/dbi.rb:381:in `connect'
app/models/test_dbi.rb:11:in `selectAll'


Then I tried:

require "rubygems"
require "dbi"
gem "dbd-mysql"


And I got:

Could not load driver (no such file to load -- DBD/mysql/mysql)

RAILS_ROOT: C:/eclipse322/workspace/cmas41_rails

Application Trace | Framework Trace | Full Trace
C:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/dbi/dbi.rb:511:in `load_driver'

C:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/dbi/dbi.rb:381:in `connect'
app/models/test_dbi.rb:13:in `selectAll'


So I figured out that there is no mysql directory in 
C:\ruby\lib\ruby\site_ruby\1.8\DBD
And I copied the file 
C:\ruby\lib\ruby\gems\1.8\gems\dbd-mysql-0.4.3\lib\dbd\Mysql.rb to the 
folder C:\ruby\lib\ruby\site_ruby\1.8\DBD\MYSQL.

And tried again and have a different error:

Could not load driver (uninitialized constant DBI::TypeUtil)
RAILS_ROOT: C:/eclipse322/workspace/cmas41_rails

Application Trace | Framework Trace | Full Trace
C:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/dbi/dbi.rb:511:in `load_driver'
C:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/dbi/dbi.rb:401:in `_get_full_driver'
C:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/dbi/dbi.rb:381:in `connect'
app/models/fedag_dbi.rb:13:in `selectAll'
