> [root at machine ~]# gem list mysql
> *** LOCAL GEMS ***
> mysql (2.7)
> MySQL/Ruby provides the same functions for Ruby programs that the
> MySQL C API provides for C programs.
> If I do a 'gem update' however, gem picks up updates for mswin32 as
> being more recent that my current:
> [root at machine ~]# gem update mysql
> Upgrading installed gems...
> Attempting remote upgrade of mysql
> Attempting remote installation of 'mysql'
> Select which gem to install for your platform (x86_64-linux)
> 1. mysql 2.7.2006.05.10 (mswin32)
> 2. mysql 2.7.2006.04.21 (mswin32)
> 3. mysql 2.7 (ruby)
> 4. mysql 2.6 (ruby)
> 5. mysql 2.5.1 (ruby)
> 6. Cancel installation
> This is annoying as it means I have to update mysql each time I do a
