Hey everyone... I'm using Linux with Fedora Core 2. I decided last night I want to try and install ruby and rails. Ruby installed very easily, it was a lot less painless than I thought. Next I needed to install Gems, upon attempting to install Gems I realized I also don't have zlib-0.6.0. I followed directions ( http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/RailsOnFedora) and used "sudo yum install zlib-devel". This installation was successful. After thinking I had zlib installed I decided to try and install Gems...packages all extract correctly, but installing I run into these snags: ------ As of RubyGems 0.8.0, library stubs are no longer needed. Searching $LOAD_PATH for stubs to optionally delete (may take a while)... ...done. No library stubs found. /root/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:21:in `require__': no such file to load -- zlib (LoadError) from /root/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:21:in `require' from /root/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/package.rb:9 from /root/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:21:in `require' from /root/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/builder.rb:1 from /root/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:21:in `require' from /root/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:61:in `manage_gems' from /home/httpd/vhosts/cambridgecreative.net/httpdocs/rubygems-0.8.11/./post-install.rb:64:in `install_sources' from /home/httpd/vhosts/cambridgecreative.net/httpdocs/rubygems-0.8.11/./post-install.rb:75:in `instance_eval' from setup.rb:583:in `try_run_hook' from setup.rb:577:in `run_hook' from setup.rb:1315:in `exec_task_traverse' from setup.rb:1168:in `exec_install' from setup.rb:887:in `exec_install' from setup.rb:705:in `invoke' from setup.rb:674:in `invoke' from setup.rb:1352 [root@u15194085 rubygems-0.8.11]# /root/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:21:in `require__': no such file to load -- zlib (LoadError) --- Any ideas what my problem can be? I thought this Rails installation was going to be easy but now that I'm about 5 hours deep I am rethinking that...Any help you can give me would be much appreciated. Thanks a lot.

After you installed zlib library, you need to recompile Ruby. zlib extension is missing. Kent.
