gem install ferret

Need to update 4 gems from http://gems.rubyforge.org

Building native extensions. This could take a while…
ERROR: While executing gem … (Gem::Installer::ExtensionBuildError)
ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.

ruby extconf.rb install ferret
can’t find header files for ruby.


Then I try to uninstall and i get the following:


gem uninstall ferret
ERROR: While executing gem … (Gem::InstallError)
Unknown gem ferret-> 0


Then I try to rake my db and i get errors


$ rake db:migrate
(in /home/drhenner/eggpad)
rake aborted!
no such file to load – ferret_ext


I have no idea what i can do to just uninstall ferret from my system. I
would prefer to have it work but at the very least i don’t want it to
stop all future work. I installed 0.11.4 first and i got the same
problem. I manually removed all the files and directories in
ruby/gems/1.8/gems/ferret-0.11.4/

it didnt help at all.

This has to be my worst experience with a rubygem EVER. Everything
always runs smooth up until now.

What are the ruby header files by the way???
