How to fix error caused by libmysqlclient.15.dylib not being loaded?

I’ve upgraded to Rails 2.2.2 and installed the MySQL 2.7 gem and am seeing this error when I try to run a migration or start the server:

dlopen(/Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/mysql-2.7/lib/mysql.bundle, 9): Library not loaded: /usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql/libmysqlclient.15.dylib
Referenced from: /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/mysql-2.7/lib/mysql.bundle
Reason: image not found - /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/mysql-2.7/lib/mysql.bundle

What’s the fix?


Answering my own question for the benefit of others.

I found the fix here.


sudo install_name_tool -change /usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql/libmysqlclient.15.dylib /usr/local/mysql/lib/libmysqlclient.15.dylib /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/mysql-2.7/lib/mysql.bundle
sudo install_name_tool -change /usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql/libmysqlclient.15.dylib /usr/local/mysql/lib/libmysqlclient.15.dylib /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/mysql-2.7/mysql.bundle

Worked for me.
