I installed ferret and it cleaned me out!!!
I do the following:
gem install ferret
Need to update 4 gems from http://gems.rubyforge.org
Select which gem to install for your platform (i386-linux)
- ferret 0.11.4 (ruby)
- ferret 0.11.4 (mswin32)
- ferret 0.11.3 (ruby)
- ferret 0.11.2 (ruby)
- Skip this gem
- Cancel installation
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
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
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???
