I'm trying to install Merb, first thing I got was an issue with
sqlite3, but I fixed that by re-installing both the sqlite3 and
Now I'm having an issue with nokogiri. Here's the problem:

dyld: NSLinkModule() error
dyld: Symbol not found: _xmlTextReaderConstXmlVersion

I'm on Mac OS X 10.4 Ruby 1.8.6 and yes, I've got libxml, libxml2,
libxslt and their respective -devs

Any clues?

Did you install via ports?  Do you know what version of libxml2 you have

Do you mind filing a ticket?

libxml2  2.6.30-1001

Sure, I'll do that. I'll also investigate further to try and solve it.

Just for the record (literaly) this issue was solved. It was caused
because Mac OS X 10.4 libxml2 is 'slightly' broken. All you need to
do is to get a new one, through macports, fink ou building your own.

Thanks a lot to Aaron P. for helping me out.
