Programmers who work mostly on windows have seen this kind of errors many times.. as a windows programmer I have been through many sites and collect d relevant data, now I am showing it to you..
The errors which might come to you something like this:
no such file to load mysql
rake aborted: no such file to load mysql
The bundled mysql.rb driver has been removed from Rails 2.2. Please install the mysql gem and try again: gem install mysql
Could not find RubyGem rake-compiler (~> 0.5)
To solve such problems follow these steps:
Step 1. Update rubygems to the latest version(like I upgraded it to 1.3.5).
Step 2: install rake-compiler(by gem install rake-compiler).
Step 3: if already installed hoe gem update it(gem update hoe) or install a fresh one.
Step 4: Download libMySQL.dll from here and copy it into C:/ruby/bin or wherever your ruby is installed, but make sure it should be in bin directory.
Step 5: Stop the mysql service, from Control Panel -> Administrative tools -> services -> mysql, and then restart it.
That’s it. You are done, after all these steps you can try
Suppose if that doesn’t work then after 4th step, stop the mysql service and restart your system.
I welcome all of you to post your comments, feedbacks, queries
