Is there anything specific with mysql as to why thats required?

Trying to help a friend setup on a windows machine and mysql is failing to install :(

Wondering if it might be easier to revert to the sqlite option...

What seems to be working for me (at least on OSX - still trying to get the Windows machine going..)

Change mysql to sqlite3 in the Gemfile

Run bundle to install that gem

Change config/database.yml dev entry to this:

adapter: sqlite3
database: db/dev.sqlite3
pool: 5

Then setup db
rake db:migrate

seed db
rake db:seed

Then run server
rails server

Plus had to disable this gem - hopefully thats not used too much...

gem 'jasmine-headless-webkit'
