Compiling Ruby on Rails on OS X

Hi all,

i got rid of locomotive as advised in another post…

i’ve just downloaded the compiler version, and have tried to run
./configure

however i get this back in terminal:

./configure
checking build system type… powerpc-apple-darwin8.11.0
checking host system type… powerpc-apple-darwin8.11.0
checking target system type… powerpc-apple-darwin8.11.0
checking for gcc… no
checking for cc… no
checking for cl.exe… no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log’ for more details.

Any ideas on how i go ahead??

Cheers

Install the developer tools. And you’re best off downloading the
latest one for your OS version from the Apple Developer Connection
site (basic membership is free, just register and you’ll be able to
download it), as the version that ships on your PPC MacOS cd will give
compile errors with universal binary source code.
