I have tried to install gem install mysql on wsl2 but I got the error.

Building native extensions.  This could take a while...

previously I tried to these answers listed [here][1], and [here][2], but none worked for me!. I also installed libmysqlclient-dev mysql-server but it seems this is a different problem.

EDIT:

well, someone suggested to reinstall libmysqlclient-dev apt-get install libmysqlclient-dev and then I got another error:
