This module tested with Node version v0.2.5 (@v1.1.0). Also it pass all tests on 0.3.0 (@v1.0.3-11-ge4b5d00).

To build it you must install libmysqlclient library and development files for it. Node-waf use mysql_config to determine the paths to the library and header files. To install these dependencies, you can use the console.

For CentOS:

#> yum install mysql-devel

For openSUSE:

#> zypper install libmysqlclient-devel

For Debian/Ubuntu:

#> apt-get install libmysqlclient-dev

Yes, you would use aptitude if you want.
