What happens when you do what the command says:

$ bundle install

Do you have a Gemfile ? You might show it here.

HTH,

Peter

Seems that you are on a Mac

If you installed Postgres on your system using the binaries downloaded
directly from postgresql.org website, the following should fix this
issue…

PATH=$PATH:/Library/PostgreSQL/9.0/bin sudo gem install pg

you can type pg_config at the prompt to see environment variable
setting if it’s in your path, otherwise do a find to locate the
binary:

sudo updatedb
locate pg_config

you can use grep to narrow down the search

locate pg_config | grep bin

on my linux box, I use something like the following to install gem pg

sudo gem install pg – --with-pg-config=/usr/local/pgsql/bin/pg_config

you may need to install the header files if you if you installed
postgresql using your system package. I personally just build
postgresql from source, which is something you may want to look into
if you feel comfortable with this

Point of clarification: there are no Mac binaries available directly
from postgresql.org. The are 3 links there which all lead to external
sites with installers maintained external to the postgres project, which
are built with who knows what options, and installed into unusual
locations.

Also, ./configure, make, make install work perfectly well on OS X.

sorry - you’re correct - it was the one-click installer from
EnterpriseDB site.
