I have the mysql 2.7 gem installed on my Linux box:
[root at machine ~]# gem list mysql
*** LOCAL GEMS ***
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
"gem update" (which in turn means I need to remember to "gem update --
Any way to tell gem that I want it to disregard mswin32 gems?
