Ruby... Rails... Install... Problems... Solutions...

Today I installed Ruby on Rails, MySQL, and all related items on my Machine. It was a mostly painless process due to some great guidance from Christopher. However, we did run into one problem when trying to install the MySQL API module for Ruby. When running make from the command line, I experienced a number of errors starting with mysql.c:2018: error: 'ulong' undeclared (first use in this function). Ick. So thanks to a Google search, I found myself at nano Rails - a site dedicated to development, testing, and hosting of Ruby on Rails. Great stuff and this page solved my problem. (I had to add '#include "my_global.h"' to mysql.c (as the first #include) before I executed the make command.) So simple and boom, it worked! Thanks Pascal!
