Hello, I’m a web craftsman with a passion for the modern web. I build web applications and play with social services and communities.
When running rake tasks (that are related to the database) in Rails apps I ran into the following error a couple of times on different OS X Snow Leopard machines:
uninitialized constant MysqlCompat::MysqlRes
The mysql gem is installed but got compiled for a wrong architecture for some reason. I’m not 100% sure when this happens but if you run into the problem uninstall the mysql gem
$ sudo gem uninstall mysql
and reinstall it with this flag
$ sudo env ARCHFLAGS="-arch x86_64" gem install mysql
if you are using rvm you can skip the “sudo” on all commands.
