I downloaded and unpacked G3b1, and went to the installer URL. I filled out the database details, hit continue and got presented by a blank page.
A little investigation leads me to believe that things stop here in installer.php:
The problem being that I don't have the mysql module installed (only mysqli), and according to the PHP documentation, that is the standard situation for PHP 5+ (and PHP5 is a pre-req for gallery?). I can also see that the installer checks whether the mysqli module is available in web.php:
"type" => function_exists("mysqli_set_charset") ? "mysqli" : "mysql");
So.. it checks for its availability, and then just attempts to use the other one, which isn't available at all. All a little strange :o)
