MariaDB 5.5, Ubuntu LTS, Rails and required libmysqlclient-dev
I posted a question on Ubuntu regarding this but it may be to specific for them to answer and thought someone here may have greater expertise. Refer http://askubuntu.com/questions/338383/mariadb-install-libmysqlclient-dev-uninstallable-on-lts
I want to use MariaDB in my rails application and I am using Ubuntu 12.04.3. I have successfully installed MariaDB using the materials at the MariaDB Downloads page and installed the repositories.
A requirement in Rails for connectivity is the mysql2 gem. In order to have this compile the libmysqlclient-dev package is needed to be installed.
However after installing Maria I attempted to instal this requirement but could not meed dependency and Ubuntu returned.
Has anyone had this and know how to work around it?
