MYSQL GEM not found at rubyforge


I just noticed this warning:

WARNING: You're using the Ruby-based MySQL library that ships with Rails. This library is not suited for production. Please install the C-based MySQL library instead (gem install mysql).

So I tried :

gem install mysql -- --with-mysql-config=/usr/local/mysql/bin/

Unfortunately the gem doesn't seem to be available @ rubyforge:

Bulk updating Gem source index for: ERROR: could not find mysql locally or in a repository

Any suggestions?


It should be, but it looks like you’re still using an old version of RubyGems since it still does the bulk updating. I’m not sure it’s related, but you can try again after “sudo gem update --system”.

Hi Peter,

sounds like you're right. The problem was solved after updating rubygems.
