I am new to both ruby and mysql and am trying to install the API for mysql using the link I am using version 1.8.4 for ruby and 5.0.19-nt for mysql. Following the readme-winpkg I entered ruby install.rb -n and got
mingw32/ => c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/i386-msvcrt
I then ran the simple.rb
# simple.rb - simple MySQL script using Ruby MySQL module

require "mysql"

# connect to the MySQL server
dbh = Mysql.real_connect("localhost", "testuser", "testpass", "test")
# get server version string and display it
puts "Server version: " + dbh.get_server_info
rescue MysqlError => e
print "Error code: ", e.errno, "\n"
print "Error message: ", e.error, "\n"
# disconnect from server
from and got:
Error code:1251
Error message: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading mysql client
simple.rb:13: undefined method 'close' for nil:NilClass <NoMethodError>

Are there any suggestion on how I can get the ruby API for mysql installed and running?
