Hi All;
I am new to RoR and have a new MacBook Pro with OS X 10.5.5
This is what I have on it.

bash-3.2$ cd /usr/local
bash-3.2$ ls
mysql mysql-5.1.30-osx10.5-x86

bash-3.2$ ruby -v
ruby 1.8.6 (2008-03-03 patchlevel 114) [universal-darwin9.0]

bash-3.2$ gem install mysql

Did you install mysql yet?

The hivelogic/ dan benjamin guide ( http://danbenjamin.com/articles/2008/02/ruby-rails-leopard
  ) covers this (you can ignore most it and just skip to the
installing the mysql gem part)

Thanks for the response.
MySQL is installed. All is OK at this point,
but sure to have more questions later.
