gem remote installation error

Hi,

I am trying to install mysql driver for ruby via gem.

% gem install mysql
Attempting local installation of 'mysql'
Local gem file not found: mysql*.gem
Attempting remote installation of 'mysql'
ERROR: While executing gem ... (Errno::ECONNREFUSED)
    Connection refused - connect(2)

gem --help indicates that more informatio can be found at
http://rubygems.rubyforge.org/. This website however does not seem to
exist.

I am a completely noob to ruby and to rails as well, so it is possible
that I might be missing something really obvious. But when I installed
rails and rake a couple of days using gem, everything installed just
fine.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks.

rubyforge.org has been down a lot over the last couple of days... try using one of the rubyforge mirrors when installing gems:

    gem install mysql --source http://rubyforge.planetargon.com/gems.rubyforge.org/
    gem install mysql --source http://gems.dpiddy.net/gems.rubyforge.org/

... or any of the other mirrors out there.

Hope this helps,

Peter
