MySQL Question

Ruby gem mysql2 install failing

When I try to install the mysql2 gem, it fails with no apparent errors. Does anyone know what to do to work around this so mysql2 installs?


Tanner-Smiths-MacBook-Pro:Humans_vs_Zombies_Parse tanner$ sudo gem install mysql2Building native extensions. This could take a while...

Answer

You have to have 64-bit MySQL installed on your machine, plus the build tools you get when you install xcode.
