Building RMagick on Mac OS X

Hi There,

I’m trying to implement a captcha, but am having a few issues with the
installation,

from usr/local (following to osx instructions on hivelogic:
http://hivelogic.com/articles/building-rmagick-on-mac-os-x/

However - when I run the first line:
curl -O
http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/freetype/freetype-2.1.10.tar.gz

I get error message: curl: (23) Failed writing body

when i put ‘sudo’ in front, nothing seems to happen.

ANy ideas?

Or - has anyone successfully done this on Ruby on rails?

If so - which site is the best (and easiest) to get it up and running?

thanks

Don’t know what that error means (man page should tell you i would
think), but you can always just download it manually and keep going…

This is what I used long ago when I set it up (based on hivelogic and
some other stuff). Start reading at the “freetype” section and stop
after ImageMagick is installed…
