install_options not being passed

Reported by Chris Williams | March 20th, 2009 @ 06:02 PM

I'm probably doing something wrong, but I can't seem to pass the build options when installing the mysql gem.

Here's my geminstaller.yml: - name: mysql version: '= 2.7' install_options: '-- --with-mysql-config=/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_config'

Then: sudo geminstaller

Invoking gem install for mysql, version 2.7. [RubyGems:stderr] ERROR: Error installing mysql:

ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.

Yet when I type: sudo gem install mysql -- --with-mysql-config=/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_config

It installs without any problems.

Thanks, Chris

    Thanks for the report.

    This is a duplicate of http://thewoolleyweb.lighthousea...

    It was a bug in RubyGems where these options were not handled properly when invoked via the API. I've fixed the bug, and it should be working with the next release of RubyGems. If you want, you can download the trunk of rubygems and build it via 'ruby setup.rb', and it should work then.
