mysql2 gem not installing on CentOS 5.3

view full story

http://serverfault.com – I'm trying to get the gem mysql2 installed on centOS5.3 but resulting in a conflict to mysql55. Sometimes (not always) I can install mysql55 and mysql55-server but after that I need to install mysql-devel to get a missing mysql.h file on the gem mysql2 installation. But mysql-devel conflicts to mysql55 and install fails. Does anyone know if it is possible to get the following environment up? rails 3.2 ruby 1.9.3 mysql 5.5 apache + passenger on CentOS5.3 final machine? if it doesn't which one you recommend me? This is my other possibilites: CentOS 5.5 debian 5.0.6 openSUSE 11.2 Ubuntu 1 (HowTos)
