I'm using a fedora mysql server, while the ruby server runs off of windows. the libmysql.dll form my previous post came from a 5.1 windows mysql server.
The version mysql server on fedora is 5.0. This caused the following error:
Mysql::Error: Commands out of sync; you can't run this command now: SHOW TABLES
(See full trace by running task with --trace)
get the mysql-noinstall 5.0 server and copy the libmysql.sql into /ruby/bin
