After hours of tweaking and a series of “installing and uninstalling” ruby on rails, I finally got it working using RVM. I am using Rails 2.3.4, for some weird reason, I couldn’t get Rails 3.0 installed.
Anyways, I was following a tutorial on the web and whenever I run
rake db:migrate, I get this following error:
kimber:depot huang$ rake db:migrate
!!! The bundled mysql.rb driver has been removed from Rails 2.2. Please install the mysql gem and try again: gem install mysql.

As you know, unlike Linux, there is no environment variable called
LD_LIBRARY_PATH to set. Instead, you would set the
DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to your mysql libraries like so:
Add this line into your .profile file and source it. This should fix this error.
