I installed all of the packaged for "Ruby on Rails" on the Cassendra release of Mint. However, I can not get the gem to install the mySql driver. When I enter
sudo gem install mysql
I get the message:
Building native extensions. This could take a while...
extconf.rb:1:in `require': no such file to load -- mkmf (LoadError)
ERROR: While executing gem ... (RuntimeError)
ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.
Gem files will remain installed in /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/mysql-2.7 for inspection.
I searched the net and tried various fixes for Ubuntu, but none appear to work for Mint. Anyone have an idea if I am missing something or will rails not work on this release?
