Rails, MySQL and Snow Leopard

I upgraded to Snow Leopard using the disc we got at WWDC.

Trying to run some of my rails apps now complains about sql

    (in /Users/coneybeare/Projects/Ambiance/ambiance-server)
!!! The bundled mysql.rb driver has been removed from Rails 2.2. Please install the mysql gem and try again: gem install mysql.

(See full trace by running task with --trace)

I could have sworn I fixed this once before. The problem is that

sudo gem install mysql

does not work and gives the error:

 Building native extensions.  This could take a while...
ERROR:  Error installing mysql:

Gem files will remain installed in /opt/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/mysql-2.7 for inspection.

Has anybody gotten mysql to work with rails on snow leopard yet? If so, what is your setup and better yet, what can I do to reproduce it?

I just went through the same pain... here's what worked for me:

  1. Download / install the 64-bit MySQL 5.1.37 from mysql.com
  2. run the following commands:
    sudo gem update --system

    sudo env ARCHFLAGS="-arch x86_64" gem install mysql -- --with-mysql-config=/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_config

I also uninstalled all mysql gems that were floating around from my 10.5 days, that may do it if the above doesn't work for you :)
